Cemex UK purchases 10 reduced-CO2 tipper trucks
UK: Cemex has bought 10 Volvo 460 8x4 tipper trucks for use at its Angerstein Wharf aggregates depot in Greenwich. From there, the trucks will deliver sand and aggregates all around London. The trucks' bodies are made of lightweight aluminium, and they conform to Euro 6 emissions standards.
This corresponds to 80% NOx emissions reduction and 50% particulate emissions reduction compared to Euro 5 standards. Cemex UK fleet engineering manager Nigel Ponton said "The addition of these new trucks to our fleet will enable us to better meet customer demand, safely and efficiently. Safety is the number one focus whenever we add new trucks to our operation and these Volvos tick every box in that respect." Ponton continued "These trucks will all be working in busy streets across London so it's imperative we provide our drivers with the best tools possible to do the job and help protect any vulnerable road users.
Moreover, thanks to the improved fuel efficiencies and enhanced payload these new Volvos are the most sustainable vehicles we've ever had and will help decarbonise our delivery footprint."
