Jersey Post Group purchases two Isuzu Urban delivery vehicles

Channel Islands organisation Jersey Post Group has purchased two Euro 6 7.5-tonne Isuzu Urban delivery vehicles.

The trucks have been specifically adapted to enable them to be used airside for collections and deliveries at Jersey Airport.

The Isuzu Urban N75.150 trucks are being used to transfer parcels and packages from the airport back to the main Jersey Post sorting depot in Jersey.

As part of this daily operation, the vehicles are required to go airside to load and unload, directly from planes on the runway.

Nick Perchard-Rees, transport manager at Jersey Post, said: “We bought our first Isuzu trucks over four years ago and these too were 7.5-tonne rigids.

"Over those past four years, we have been very impressed by the proactive customer care approach from both Isuzu Trucks and its local dealer here on the island.

"When we were at the CV Show last year, we had a really close look at the new Isuzu Urban and felt that it would have great potential for regular use here in Jersey.”

Both of the new Isuzu Urban N75.150 4x2 rigids have been custom-built for Jersey Post with 1.5-tonne capacity rear-column tail-lifts and feature Isuzu’s popular Easyshift semi-automated transmission.

"Both vehicles have been modified to include extra roof lights and feature rigid box bodies that fully comply with all airport regulations.

" Replacing two existing 7.5-tonne vehicles, the new Isuzu rigids will have a working life of between seven and nine years on the island."
