To showcase its new livery, Ipswich-based Fifth Gear Transport Services has selected the Range T High with flat floor cab for its new flagship vehicles.
The specialist in chilled, frozen and ambient distribution has put three Range T480 High 6×2 pusher axle tractor units into service operating out of Felixstowe on general container distribution across the UK and joining its fleet of 38. Renault Trucks dealer Norfolk Truck and Van, supplied the high specification 13 litre Range T480 Highs which are equipped with ultimate upper bunk, air-suspended heated and ventilated seat and 40L quiet fridge.
They include the Optidriver gearbox AT 2412F with automated clutch, 2400 Nm torque, 12 forward and 3 reverse gears with choice of automatic or manual mode on the steering wheel. The T Highs are on a 3-year full repair and maintenance contract with all work undertaken by Norfolk Truck and Van.
Dave Warburton, Operations Manager said: “The trucks are working five days and nights a week on long distances all across the UK. The T High, with its flat floor, delivers a spacious and comfortable home-from-home environment specifically designed with driver comfort in mind for long journeys – our drivers are absolutely delighted.
“As well as being fantastic all-round motors, the transmission is the best on the market, gear selection is quick and smooth. We have a great relationship with Norfolk Truck and Van. The team understands our business and always get the work done in an efficient and timely manner, I can’t fault them at all.”
