Fleet news logo

Wholesaler Castell Howell Foods has added 16 Mercedes-Benz Atego 12-tonners to its fleet.

The trucks, all 1224 LnR models with low-frame chassis and S-Classic Space day cabs, have been fitted with dual-compartment insulated bodies by Gray & Adams, and Frigoblock refrigeration units so they can carry chilled and frozen product.

Castell Howell Foods has a fleet of more than 100 trucks and vans, and the new vehicles will be used primarily on distribution routes into rural West Wales.

Martin Jones, the company’s director of transport operations, said: “We’ve been running Atego rigids in a variety of sizes for 15 years or more.

“They’ve been an integral part of our ongoing success story, proving in service to be exceptionally tough and reliable, as well as highly competitive in terms of wholelife operating costs. “
