Volvo wins back

Nantwich-based, GA Newsome Haulage has gone back to Volvo after buying other marques for the past four years.
Newsome hs added four new EGR-engined Volvo FH tractor units to its 30 strong fleet. Already operating 23 Volvo trucks, the new Euro 4 units will replace existing vehicles as part of its five-year vehicle replacement programme.
Managing director Geoff Newsome said: “After trying out other manufacturers I have decided to return to Volvo. They are a reliable truck and always maintain a high residual value.”
The latest FH-500 additions were plated for 44 tonne GCW and specified with 500bhp, Euro 4 with EGR technology, 16-speed gearboxes and all topped off with Globetrotter ‘XL’ cabs in ‘Prestige’ trim.
