Fuel savings drive first Renaults for James Kemball


Recommended Posts

Felixstowe-based container haulier James Kemball has added 10 Renault trucks to its 120-strong fleet of Mercedes, Scania and Volvo units – the first in its 42-year history.

"After gaining the title of International Truck of the Year and hearing about the improvements to the new Euro 6 vehicles, we felt the time was right to take a fresh look at Renault Trucks and in particular the new Range T," explains general manager Chris Abbott.

Supplied by local dealer Renault Trucks Felixstowe, the Range T460 6X2 Euro 6 tractor units, plated at 44 tonnes have joined James Kemball's fleet on a two-year lease deal through BRS under a full R&M contract including tax and tyres.

"The demonstrator performed exceptionally well in fuel evaluation trials and we felt that the new cab is now on a par with its major competitors by including microwaves and TV/DVD players," comments Abbott.

"This, together with first-class back up support from our local Renault Trucks' approved dealer, and a competitive leasing deal from BRS, cemented our decision to go with Renault Trucks," he adds.

The Range Ts are now being used for long-distance operations, transporting containers from Felixstowe Port across the UK for shipping lines, freight forwarders, and logistics companies.
