Leading haulage company, Goldstar Transport Ltd., has taken delivery of a total of 60 new Euro 5, 6x2 Renault Premium 460.25s, all with Privilege cabs. In an important conquest deal for Renault Trucks and Renault Trucks Felixstowe, they are the first Renaults to join the company’s existing 200-strong mixed fleet in over seven years.
The new Renault Premiums will be used on a four year contract for the UK arm of the global, deep sea shipping company, Mediterranean Shipping Company, undertaking container transport on a nationwide basis.
Matthew Ashworth, Managing Director, Goldstar Transport Ltd. says: “Renault Trucks and Renault Trucks Felixstowe put together an excellent package on the new Premiums, with servicing at eight weekly intervals. All 60 of the vehicles will be maintained at Felixstowe on a 48 month contract. The Premium is a quality truck at a very competitive price. The Privilege cab is well kitted out and after impressive fuel returns on the demonstrator vehicle that we trialled, we are expecting to see fuel savings with the Optidriver+ gearbox.”
