K2 scales new peaks with more Mercedes-Benz trucks

Transport Engineer  /  September 13, 2016

Uckfield-based K2 Transport has updated and extended its HGV fleet with eight more trucks from Mercedes-Benz, in the wake of joining the Pall-Ex network.

Six are Actros 2545 "BigSpace" tractor units, while the other two are 18-tonne Antos 1824s with curtainside bodies by Lawrence David.

“The contract hire deal put together by Rossetts was attractively priced, while Mercedes-Benz trucks suit our business admirably,” states co-director Kim Brand.

“Not only are they fuel-efficient, reliable and popular with the drivers – those with the Actros tractors particularly like their spacious, flat-floored cabs – but they also help us to convey the upmarket image of quality we have sought to project from the outset.”

All the new trucks are the subject of contract hire agreements with Rent-a-Merc – like supplying dealer Rossetts Commercials, a member of the Northern Ireland-based Inspired Business Investments Group.

They are now being inspected and maintained at Rossetts’ Eastbourne workshop.

“We get on very well with the dealer’s Eastbourne team, who provide an excellent level of support,” continues Brand.

“Our trucks go into the workshop on Friday nights for inspections and maintenance, and we pick them up again the following morning.”
