As part of a multi-million-pound investment in new vehicles for its UK-wide construction network, Wincanton has selected the Renault Trucks Range T as the latest addition to its 200-plus dedicated construction vehicle line-up.
The twelve 44-tonne Range T460 6x2 tractor units with sleeper cab, which are part of a wider outlay in new vehicles, are in addition to the existing 21 Range Ts (including two night and day cabbed Range T430 6x2s) purchased last year, and will be used to carry building materials.
The Range Ts come with specification enhancement for FORS and CLOCS compliance, and are being supplied on an operating lease with R&M support via Wincanton’s in-house maintenance provider, Pullman Fleet Services.
Previously favourable experiences with Renault Premiums, driver acceptance and good operating costs were key to Wincanton’s vehicle selection. Transport manager Dave Rowlands explained: “We are dedicated to adding value and delivering excellent service to our customers, and the Renault Range T460 trucks are a valuable addition to our fleet, ensuring our customers receive the most efficient and effective delivery process possible.”
Renault Trucks regional business manager, Martin Christopher, added: “We are delighted that Wincanton has selected Renault Trucks to support the growth of its construction business.
“The Range T has developed a well-deserved reputation for exceptional operating performance, fuel efficiency as well as high driver acceptance and is fast becoming the first choice for many businesses looking to improve the attractiveness of their transport offering.”
