Liverpool-based construction industry waste disposal and recycling experts City Centre Commercials (CCC) have taken delivery of the largest single order for Volvo FMX tippers since the truck’s launch in 2010. The company, which was founded in 1986, celebrated 25 years in business last year.
The 15 FMX-410 8×4 tippers were supplied by Volvo dealer Thomas Hardie Commercials in Knowsley, Liverpool. All the FMXs are being maintained on four year, full R&M contracts by the dealer at their Knowsley workshops.
These are the first Volvos to be operated by CCC and will be used on muckaway duties and for hauling of all types of construction waste to their recycling facilities which handle over 10,000 tonnes a week.
All the Volvo FMX tippers are equipped with I-Shift transmissions and B-ride bogie suspension. CCC is also trialling Volvo’s telematics system, Dynafleet.
The ABBA bodywork is manufactured from high strength Hardox steel. Auto sheeting systems and reversing cameras are also fitted.
