One of Ireland’s leading warehousing and logistics companies, Brian Daly Transport, has taken delivery of a new Renault Premium Truck Racing Special Series tractor unit as the new flagship truck on its 36-strong fleet. The special edition Renault Premium 460.25 6×2 LD TML truck was supplied by through the local Renault Trucks dealer, Setanta Vehicle Sales, and was purchased following outstanding fuel figures from previous Renault Premiums on the fleet.
The truck has the Optidriver+ automated gearbox and will undertake collection and delivery for Brian Daly Transport’s major client, Coca Cola, across the whole of Ireland.
The new Premium is the latest Renault truck to join Brian Daly Transport’s fleet, as part of an on-going programme which will see the company replacing Scania and DAF to eventually run an all-Renault fleet by mid 2013.
Brian Daly, Managing Director, Brian Daly Transport, says: “One of the main reasons we are moving to an all-Renault fleet is the tremendous fuel savings we have achieved from our current Renaults. The new Premiums are running at 9-9.5 mpg, compared to 7-7.5mpg on the older DAFs, which is outstanding.”
After sales service was also cited at a key reason for the move to Renault: “We have a great relationship with Setanta, who always offer us a quick turnaround, meaning very little downtime. We are delighted with the new Premium. Its ‘racing inspired’ design looks fantastic on the road and it also has the lowest fuel consumption and the best payload on the market.”
