Felixstowe-based Multimodal Logistics has added five new T480 High Turbo Compound 6×2 tractor units to its fleet, the first for the container haulage operator, supplied by Renault Truck Commercials.

Tim Wray, Managing Director, Multimodal Logistics said: “Our operation has witnessed substantial growth, doubling our fleet size since 2019. After running a competitor’s model during this period, we felt it was an opportunity to explore other brands in the market to ensure that our trucks are delivering optimum performance to our business.”

The T480 High is working on UK-wide container distribution. Tim said: “We selected the T480 High TC for its driver appeal. The drivers are out all week tramping, and we wanted a high-specification vehicle with all the creature comforts. The T-High cab fits the bill perfectly and provides a roomy working and living space.”

The T480 High TCs have been secured on a 48-month contract, with maintenance carried out by Renault Truck Commercials in Felixstowe. All new vehicles have been supplied with Renault Truck’s Optifleet fleet management system facilitating informed decision-making, reducing operating costs and monitoring real-time performance of both vehicles and drivers.

Tim concluded: “The vehicles are hitting their targets and performing well on fuel, achieving in excess of 11mpg, which is in the top end of fuel figures for the fleet. Our initial impressions of the dealership have been excellent too, they are forward-thinking, and customer focused, and we look forward to working with the team.”
