Leading commercial vehicle company Euroway has just completed a long-term contract hire deal to supply a new Isuzu Forward N75.190 7.5 t refrigerated truck to Banbury fresh and frozen meat wholesaler Tadmarton Products Ltd.
Tadmarton Products are a long-standing customer for Euroway, who now supplied over 50% of their current transport and distribution fleet requirements. The decision by Tadmarton to specify Isuzu for the first time for this replacement vehicle was due to the proven payload and reliability of the Isuzu marque for 7.5t distribution operations.
According to Tadmarton’s managing director Mike Mourant, “When we were looking to replace an existing 7.5tonne vehicle in our 10 strong distribution fleet, it was Euroway that suggested we take a look at Isuzu. We have also noticed the Isuzu’s popularity with other companies operating similar distribution operations as ourselves using temperature controlled trucks at 7.5 tonnes.”
Operating on a six-year contract hire agreement with Euroway, that includes their popular FleetSure fleet maintenance programme, the Isuzu N75.190 4×2 rigid has been specified with a single compartment G&A refrigerated box body that uses a Carrier Transicold Xarios 500 direct drive refrigeration system.
The vehicle is operating out of Tadmarton’s main distribution hub in Banbury, delivering chilled produce to customers in 19 counties across the Midlands and in particular supporting the company’s growth in the South West.
Handing over the vehicle to Tadmarton Products, Geoff Howard from Euroway said, “For this particular operation at 7.5tonne, the Isuzu Forward chassis cab is a proven workhorse, with outstanding payload, and it is sure to provide Tadmarton with excellent service over its working life. Tadmarton has been a customer with Euroway for many years now and we know their operation well and are able to specify the right vehicles for each individual operation.”
