Helsby and Longden takes ’65 plate Volvo FE AND FH trucks

Runcorn-based general haulier Helsby and Longden has taken delivery of seven new 65 plate Volvo trucks from Thomas Hardie Commercials, Middlewich. The comprise four 6.8 metre wheelbase FE-280 4×2 18-tonners, two 5.8 metre wheelbase FE-320 6×2 26-tonners and a high-spec Globetrotter-cabbed FH-500 6×2 tractor unit. The rigids were all specified with I-Shift automatic gearboxes and all of the new trucks have been equipped with Dynafleet telematics, which Helsby and Longden is now trialling. Operations director Jamie Jardine says the family-owned operator decided to continue with Volvo trucks in light of its good operating experience since first choosing the marque back in the 1990s. We ve had a really good experience with Volvo s reliability and you can t fault the back-up we get from Thomas Hardie, states Jardine. These new trucks are all on Volvo s Gold R&M contract with the maintenance being carried out at Middlewich, he continues. We decided to replace the rigids with the latest series Volvo FE, which now has the I-Shift gearbox. This is ideal for the multi-drop work we do and there should be less wear and tear on the truck too.
