McGee invests a further £2m in truck fleet

McGee truck fleet

McGee has invested a further £2m in its truck fleet with 20 tipper, skip and plant lorries added to its FORS Gold accredited fleet.

The company’s new Scania-Thompson tipper lorries feature nearside lower door windows to enhance the driver’s view, and side strobe indicators to help vulnerable road users recognise when the vehicle is turning.

The strobe indicators, designed in partnership with Nottingham Trent University (NTU), marks an “operator first” as McGee believes to be the first operator to install them.

Other safety features include the in-house-designed vehicle inspection mobile app, and the traffic light vehicle weigh loading indicator system.

The indicators tell machine operators when the vehicle is at its maximum carrying capacity - ensuring vehicles do not leave site overweight and full road safety compliance.

McGee’s director John McGee said: “We continue to invest a lot of time and resource in our commitment to safety, environmental impact and efficient fleet management. 

"The side indicator is an exciting innovation and is another step in our journey of continuous improvement to enhance road safety in London.

“By working closely with vehicle manufacturers and academic partners, we have been able to deliver a best-in-class fleet.”

The new lorries will become part of McGee’s fifty-strong fleet of heavy goods vehicles operating across the Capital to service its construction projects.
