“Leading national and international haulage company, TAS Transport, has placed one of the first orders for a new Euro 6 T-range tractor unit. The Renault T460 6x2 with sleeper cab will be delivered in January 2014, through Norfolk Truck and Van Enfield. It is the fourth Renault truck to join TAS Transport’s 50-strong, predominantly Mercedes fleet since it took its first Renault Premium in May this year. The company will also benefit from Renault Trucks’ two year R&M contract package and Fuel Eco package, including Optifleet telematics and Optifuel driver training, provided free of charge on all new orders placed before the end of 2013. The new truck will undertake long distance operations on behalf of the Palletways network. Terry Stevens, Managing Director, TAS Transport, explains why the company chose to opt for the new T-range model: “Since adding the first Renault to our fleet this year we have been very impressed with the fuel consumption and have seen an increase in the mpg we are achieving. However, we are even more excited about the fuel returns promised with the new T-range. Plus, with the addition of the Optifleet telematics system, driver training and Fuel Eco Pack benefits that come with the truck we are hoping to make further savings.” He continues: “With regards to our drivers, we have had nothing but positive feedback from them in regards to the new Premiums, with easy to drive, comfortable sleeper cabs, offering a good panoramic view. Again, we are looking forward to even greater comfort from the new T-range model, which is extremely spacious and almost a ‘walk-around’ cab.” Speaking of the company’s future objectives, he says: “Once we have had the new Renault T460 on the road for a few months we are looking to purchase two more trucks, which will either be Premiums or T460s. We definitely see a future with Renault and, when the time comes, we will look to replace our rigid trucks with Renaults as well as the tractor units.” Based near Heathrow Airport in Hayes, Middlesex, TAS Transport is now in its second decade of trading. The company specialises in Airfreight Services & Logistics; Contract Hire; Palletised Freight and Warehousing & Container devaning at its 20,000 sq. ft. warehouse in Heathrow.

“The South East’s largest furniture store, Fishpools, has taken delivery of four new 7.5 tonne Extra Light Renault Midlum 180.08s, with Optitronic automated gearboxes. The Euro 5 trucks have been fitted with 6.7m Carbofont box bodies by commercial vehicle body builders, Hunter Vehicles. Supplied through Renault Trucks distributor, Norfolk Truck and Van, they are the first Renaults to join the company’s fleet of Mercedes and Ford. The Renault Midlums will be used to transport furniture for Fishpool’s home delivery service, from its warehouse in Hertford mainly to customers in all the Home Counties and into London, plus further afield with web orders from its online shopping facility as well as existing customers. Sean Dudley, Warehouse Manager, Fishpools, says: “The Renault Midlum Extra Light allows us to use a larger box body on a smaller truck, meaning we have the same fuel efficiency as larger trucks but with greater manoeuvrability in residential areas, tighter turning circles and better payload. We were attracted by the Optitronic gearbox because as we increase our distribution, we need to keep fuel costs down. We are hoping to see fuel savings as well as improved driver comfort for the longer distances being travelled. We are so pleased, however, with the new Renaults so far that we are looking to replace our smaller 3.5 tonne Fords with Renaults in the near future.” Fishpools is a family business established in 1899 by Ernest Fishpool as a small clothes and furniture shop in Waltham Cross, Hertfordshire. The company continued to expand over 110 years and now boasts a 62,000 square foot showroom, selling over 200 styles of sofa, 150 ranges of dining tables and chairs, 100 beds and over 75 ranges of bedroom furniture. Having outgrown its three storage areas in New Ford Road, the warehouse operation moved to its current location in Hertford 18 months ago, giving the company the opportunity to have all its warehousing in one location, introducing high bays, computerised stock locations and forklift picking.”
