Clugston Distribution is investing £1.5 million to expand its fleet and increase its presence in the fuels, intermodal, bulk powder and bulk ash movement markets.
It will acquire 15 Renault Premium tractors; five will be specified with ADR and Pet Reg compliance for the fuels fleet on the Humber as well as the start of a Teesside fuels operation in the summer.
Eight tractor units will be specified with hydraulic discharge fitted compressors for use in the company’s bulk powder operation.
Reflecting the partnership between Clugston and InterBulk, four of the vehicles – pulling new intermodal 30 foot tipping trailers – will be finished in InterBulk livery.
On the fuels logistics side a new fuels tanker, built by Cobo and liveried in Clugston’s distinctive light blue, will be on fleet in April and will be used in the new Teesside operation from June.
