Since the 1920s, Fred Sherwood Transport Ltd have been pioneers in the haulage Industry and specialise in waste and aggregate transportation. They support efficient nationwide coverage with a 150-vehicle-strong fleet based in Shepshed Leicestershire.
Looking to replace existing vehicles on the fleet, Justin Sherwood, Managing Director, approached RH Commercial Vehicles for assistance.
Justin said, “Driver comfort is one of the key qualities that we look for in a new vehicle. With these met in the Renault Trucks range, and the great backup from RH Commercial Vehicles, we felt confident speaking to them about replacing existing trucks.”
On this occasion, they purchased 10 new Renault Truck T High 6×2 mini-mid-lift, to be used for long-haul journeys around the UK moving waste.
Justin said, “Our drivers will be in their trucks for days at a time, travelling up and down the country. Therefore, it is vital to provide them with a reliable vehicle that they feel comfortable in.”
The cab has been kitted with all the creature comforts to make it home from home when the driver is on long trips. A luxury driver seat and passenger seat have been fitted which includes heating and ventilation systems. A multimedia touchscreen, ROADPAD+ and refrigerator also allow the driver to relax when on breaks.
“It is important to have these details in the cab for driver wellbeing and retention. By providing a truck which enhances the comfort and wellbeing, we can show our drivers that they are valued and will be looked after.”
The Renault Trucks T Range also holds safety in high regard. As standard, the truck is fitted with anti-lock braking system, anti-slip regulation, hill start assist, anti-rollover and electronic parking brake.
Overall, Fred Sherwood were very happy with their experience. With a reliable vehicle, backed up with 5 year R&M/ warranty, the great relationship between RHCV and themselves is set to strengthen.
