WMS Warranty

Birmingham-based, RGF Logistics has bought two high-spec Volvo FH16 750s to mark the company’s 50th year in business.

The 6×2 pusher axle tractor units, which were supplied by Dan Byworth, Truck Sales Executive at Hartshorne Motor Services, are powered by Volvo’s D16K Euro-6 engine rated at 750hp, while the 6×2 chassis come with front steel and rear air suspension systems. I-Shift gearboxes and Globetrotter XL Cabs were also specified on the pair, which will be used on the company’s haulage and logistics operations across the UK.

Inside the new vehicles, the drivers will benefit from Drive Plus+ and Two Bed Living Packages, in addition to an audio system, leather seats and reversing camera. RGF Logistics opted for a three-year Volvo Gold Service Contract for the FH16s’ which will be carried out by their local Hartshorne Motor Services dealerpoint.

Terry Harris, Operations Director at RGF Logistics Limited said: “We’ve enjoyed a working partnership with Hartshorne Motor Services since the year 2000 and our policy is to opt for R&M packages for the Volvos’ first 36 months in service. Afterwards, the trucks come into care of our own workshop team and we also have an Authorised Testing Facility (ATF) on-site.

“Our standard fleet retention policy is a minimum of five years and we keep vehicles on more local work for the latter half of that period.”
