Maritime Transport Limited (Maritime) has today announced
they’ve placed an order for 30 new tractor units from one of their main
suppliers, Volvo Trucks.
The order is for 30 FH Globetrotter XL models and comes
fresh on the back of an order for 100 new curtainsider trailers that were
bought as part of a fleet expansion for Maritime.
“We have been pleased with the fantastic running costs of
the Euro-6 Volvos we already have in our fleet, so it made perfect sense to
expand on our range with these new vehicles,” said Stuart Wardlaw, Fleet
Engineer. “The feedback we’ve had from our drivers on them has been
resoundingly positive as well, which was another factor we bore in mind when
preparing this order.”
Mike Corcoran, Commercial Director, Volvo Trucks, said:
“Both Volvo Trucks and our dealer network, are absolutely delighted to continue
to be Maritime’s business partner of choice.
The Volvo FH was designed to be the best in its class when it comes to
driver comfort, safety and security, and of course, optimising operating costs.
As a leader in its field, Maritime’s
values align closely with those of Volvo - not just in terms of quality, but
also safety and care for the environment. We are looking forward to continuing
to work closely with Maritime as we deliver these 30 new trucks.”
