Temperature controlled distribution and storage specialists M J Griffiths Transport Ltd are achieving around 9mpg “and improving” from their new FH16-750 tractor unit, reports Managing Director Mick Griffiths.
The FH16-750, one of the first to go on the road in the UK, is the latest investment in premium quality vehicles to be made by the Burscough, Lancashire based family owned company after two Volvo FH-500 6×2 tractor units also joined the sixteen strong fleet in late 2011.
Like the previous Volvo additions to the fleet, the FH16-750 was supplied by Thomas Hardie Commercials with maintenance being carried out at their Knowsley workshops. “We’re very impressed with Thomas Hardie,” says Danny Griffiths. “They really look after us.”
M J Griffiths’ new truck is trunking top quality, locally grown fruit and vegetables to wholesale markets across the country, including those in London, Bristol, Cardiff and Glasgow.
