Boughey Distribution is investing almost £8m in 100 new Mercedes-Benz Actros which will replace its current fleet.
This comes after the company trialled MAN, Volvo, DAF and Mercedes trucks.
“While value for money and whole-life cost were clearly important considerations, it was Mercedes’ great support package that sealed the deal for us,” said Paul Brimelow, Boughey fleet engineer. “In terms of driver training provision, technician training, diagnostic equipment and parts stock, as well as a dedicated parts person/administrator based on-site, we are happy that we have picked the clear, most committed winner. What’s more, our drivers were really positive about the Actros and there’s no doubt that the trucks look great too.”
The company has taken delivery of 53 new Mercedes Actros 2545 units – the rest of the fleet will be added by October 2017.
