Medical distributor expands 7.5t fleet05 August 2020

With the arrival of six new Isuzu 7.5 tonne N75.190 rigid trucks, York-based company Genta Medical now has gone 100% with Isuzu for its 7.5 tonne distribution vehicles.

Having taken delivery of its first Isuzu vehicle in 2009, Genta Medical has a long history with the brand, says transport manager Neil Dobson. He states: “With having operated Isuzus for so long, we know that very little tends to go wrong with them on a daily basis. This reliability is essential for our distribution cycles, bearing in mind the urgent and critical nature of the loads being carried.”

The Isuzu 7.5 tonne rigids are involved in the supply of diagnostic reagents and solvents to the NHS and hospitals as well as offering a collection service for waste solvents. Genta Medical plan to keep its new Isuzus for a minimum of five years. Each vehicle travels for some 85,000 km per annum. As part of the new vehicle deal, all the new Genta Isuzus will be supported by a five-year repair and maintenance contract.

Supplied and supported by local Isuzu dealer Cartwright Fleet Services in Leeds, the Isuzus are specified with the popular Easyshift automated transmission and have been fitted with box bodies that have a rear roller shutter door and near-side full-height shutter door. This extra access provides added flexibility for the driver, allowing Genta to operate both delivery and collection services with one vehicle. All the Genta drivers are ADR trained for hazardous liquids.
