kscarbel2 Posted September 18, 2016 Share Posted September 18, 2016 Transport Engineer / September 15, 2016 CSL Transport has taken delivery of seven 44-tonne Range T520 6x2 tractors following what it describes as impressive fuel consumption figures and good driver feedback. The Surrey-based firms’ new trucks comprise five mid-lifts and two tags, one specified with a 9-tonne front axle. They join CSL’s 23-strong fleet, which has operated Renault Magnums and Range T460s for several years. “The outstanding service we have received from Renault Trucks South and BRS over the years has been a crucial factor in our vehicle selection on this occasion,” explains CSL Transport fleet manager Dan Broda. “Optimum fuel economy was also an important factor and we are getting around 9.1mpg, with one vehicle reaching 10mpg. This compares to 7.4-7.8mpg with previous trucks, so we are delighted with these improved figures,” he continues. Driver retention is another key focus for CSL, he says: “With a national driver shortage, we need to be able to attract and retain some of the best in the industry. “We know that our drivers like the Renault trucks, especially with all the added features, and adding more Range Ts with the right spec is one sure-fire way to keep our best employees motivated and on board.” In fact, CSL’s new Range T520 tractors were specified with luxury leather seats, double bunks, light-bars and spotlights. They will now be transporting containers, cabins, timber and plant across the UK and Europe, as well as moving barriers for high-profile London events. All the new trucks were supplied by dealer Renault Trucks South on a four-year, with full repair and maintenance through BRS. . Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
