Centenary Celebrations Start With An FH Double

WH BOWKER, one of the oldest UK companies specialising in national and international logistics and now trading as Bowker Transport, has unveiled a new centenary livery on two new Volvo FH tractor units to start a year of celebratory activities.

Supplied by Thomas Hardie Commercials Ltd, the two new FH500 6×2 pusher axle tractor units are powered by Volvo’s D13K engine rated at 500hp. The 3,900mm wheelbase chassis come with front steel and rear air suspension, in addition to high spec Globetrotter Cabs, I-Shift automated 12 speed gearboxes and RSS1356 drive axles with a ratio of 2.50:1.

Established in 1919, Bowker’s are celebrating their centenary with Cobalt blue painted FH Globetrotter cabs to replicate the vintage blue, red and gold colour scheme used by the company in previous years and both have unique cherished registration plates.
