A new agricultural contract for MNS Developments has led to it investing in two two new sloper smoothsider tippers. 

The Cambridgeshire haulier has confirmed the duo from Fruehauf already delivering on their promise. 

MNS Developments specialises in aggregate supplies and recycling. 

Therefore, it purchased the tippers primarily to help with a new contract transporting sugar beet.

The family-run haulier will use the two trailers to transport wheat, beans and grain from farms to processing plants. 

Furthermore, two similar models purchased in 2013 will also be used to fulfil demands of the new agricultural contract.

Meanwhile, owner of MNS Developments, Mark Selby, explained the reasons for sticking with Fruehauf.

“We’re working the new tippers hard. 

“Like the older Fruehauf trailers, what’s so impressive is that they are extremely versatile.”

The detailed specification includes automatic tailgates, sheets and on-board weighers. 

The tippers will part of the company’s 15-strong fleet of vehicles operating in the East Midlands in addition to East Anglia. 

Therefore, they are expected to cover up to 150,000km a year.

The deal strengthens the haulage contractor’s relationship with Fruehauf. 

Selby said he was only too happy to do business with Fruehauf when it was acquired by MV.

In fact, he even wrapped his new tippers in Fruehauf’s full hiring livery as a gesture of gratitude to the company.

“We work together very well and we don’t actually have livery on our vehicles. 

“Fruehauf was looking at advertising on the side of a static truck. 

“Therefore, this was a chance to give something back to Fruehauf. 

“We drive the tippers on local roads through several counties and people will see that they look the business,” he says.

Continuing, Selby said: “I can’t speak more highly about Fruehauf. 

“It has brilliant products and they’re a great team, I love dealing with them.”
