Frozen food distributor Yearsley Group is trying a new truck in the shape of five Mercedes Actros tractor units.
The company runs a fleet of over 200 temperature-controlled vehicles. Although it has long experience of running Mercedes Atego rigids at 12 and 15 tonnes, Yearsley has traditionally favoured Swedish-built tractors.
It chose the Actros after monitoring a trial unit. All 460hp 2546 models, its five new Mercedes were supplied by dealer Enza, of Trafford Park, Manchester.
“We’ve always been happy with our Mercedes rigids, and the Actros demonstrator proved fuel-efficient so we decided to try these Mercedes tractors,” said operations director Edward Yearsley.
