FreshLinc Group, the Spalding, Lincolnshire-based temperature-controlled, food and horticultural products logistics supplier has taken 20 new Renault Trucks tractor units from Midlands dealer BRS Trucks.

The order consists of 18 Range T460 6x2s and two Range T480 High 6x2s, taken on a three-year term with full R&M, including tax but excluding tyres.

Fleet Engineer Andy Marchant MSOE MIRTE reports that the company bought its first Renault Trucks Range T back in 2016 and has enjoyed a supportive relationship ever since. He says: “Continually good fuel consumption figures, coupled to a high degree of driver acceptance and a good support network lead us to continue placing orders with the brand.”

Twenty new trucks will operate from both the company’s HQ in Spalding and Huntingdon, maintained by respective dealers Thompson Commercials and WTL Trucks in Peterborough.

The 18 T460s are powered by Renault Trucks’ 11-litre DTI, while the larger 13-litre DTI powers the T480 Highs. Both feature Renault’s Optidriver automated transmission.

Marchant says: “The latest vehicles are expected to cover an annual 180,000 kilometres working on the company’s temperature-controlled traffic on a continuous seven day a week operation; fuel consumption is within FreshLinc’s predictions and budget.”

FreshLinc Group now operates four separate divisions: FreshLinc Chilled, FLX Logistics Ambient, DirectLinc Container and FLB Bulk Transport Division.
