Container transport win for Iveco

Container specialist SEA Transport has taken delivery of eight Iveco Stralis Active Space Super3 tractor units.

It selected the 6×2 twin steer tractors based on their competitive fuel economy, which was proven following a fortnight’s loan of a dealer demonstrator. The rapid availability of eight identical vehicles was also important, enabling the customer to meet fleet growth objectives without delay.

Frazer Smith, managing director and joint owner of SEA Transport, said: “We looked at a number of options in the market but the Stralis deal made the most sense. The demonstrator proved popular with drivers and delivered great fuel economy; and the new arrivals haven’t disappointed. It’s still early days and the engines are running in, but we’re already seeing better fuel returns than elsewhere in the fleet.”
