Youngs Transportation and Logistics Ltd has added the first two Renault Trucks artics to its 150+ strong fleet. The 13 litre T520 High 6×2 pushers, supplied by Renault Truck Commercials, are also the first vehicles to carry the company’s new branding.
The T520 Highs follow the purchase of a 26 tonne D Range added to the mixed fleet at the end of last year. Three further T480 Highs and two 26 tonne T480 rigids are also on order.
Youngs Transportation and Logistics has recently rebranded to reflect its expansion including the acquisition of new depots located in Warrington and Felixstowe.
Andre Jenkins, South East Fleet Manager at Youngs Transportation & Logistics, said: “Introducing the new branding to the fleet was an important step in communicating the company’s new look and feel.Along with the expansion and rebrand, things are changing in the fleet too and the Renault trucks are replacements for a competitor model that we’ve used for years.”
“Not only was the overall deal more competitive, the Renault trucks, in my opinion look smarter and have a greater presence. We’ve added side skirts and stainless-steel wing mirrors to match the alloy wheels which look great against the striking black truck. The T Highs look impressive and are the perfect flagship vehicles to showcase in our new branding.”
The new T520 Highs will be working on general haulage and container haulage out of the company’s Head Office in Essex and Southampton. With drivers out four to five nights each week the vehicles chosen feature high sleeper cabs and were specified with additional on-board comfort including lockers, 40litre fridge, microwave, multimedia touchscreen, heated and ventilated driver’s seat and insulated cab curtains.
