BASED IN Longforgan, near Dundee, haulage contractors JL Wilkie & Co are reporting increased performance levels from a new Volvo FH540 tractor unit with I-Shift dual clutch transmission.

The tractor unit was ordered alongside a standard I-Shift FH500. Both new trucks are 6×2 pusher axle chassis with Globetrotter cabs.

‘In just a few weeks, Volvo’s I-Shift dual clutch transmission has far exceeded my expectations. It is the best gearbox I’ve ever used in a truck,’ reports David Wilkie, operations manager at JL Wilkie & Co.
