23 Mercedes tractors for Acumen

Acumen Distribution has taken delivery of 23 Mercedes Benz Actros 4×2 tractor units as part of its investment strategy and expansion plan.

The new tractor units will be used for Acumen’s inbound automotive contracts. They have sleeper cabs with air-sprung suspension seats.

They were obtained on a full maintenance contract hire agreement through Widnes based Riverside Truck Rental.

Managing director, Chris Doughty said: “After rigorous testing we chose the Mercedes Benz Actros, primarily on its fuel economy but were also impressed with the innovative interior and driver comfort. As we have taken these new vehicles on a three-year R&M operating lease, we are able to have good visibility of our costs throughout their time with the company.”
