Having evaluated an Iveco Eurocargo Urban Artic in its 1,000 fleet of vehicles, drinks logistics provider Tradeteam has been supplied with 26 extra units to enable monitoring at a larger number of sites.
Tradeteam, part of Exel, is using the Eurocargo 230E24T/P 4×2 Urban Artics together with ultra-low deck trailers which make them ideal for operations in the brewery trade. Plated to operate at up to 23 tonnes and with a wheelbase of just 2,632mm, the Eurocargo Urban Artics each have a low fifth wheel height of 1,043mm when unladen.
Nigel Bailey, engineering operations manager at Exel, says: “The Eurocargo Urban Artics fit well with our requirement for a highly manoeuvrable tractor unit which makes getting access to restricted urban locations, such as high street pubs and clubs, that much easier.”
Supplied by Blackwell-based Sherwood Commercials, the vehicles will operate five days a week and are expected to cover up to 32,000 miles a year.
