Northwards’ £1.5m Truck Investment

NORTHWARDS, the haulage operator with bases in Shetland, Orkney, Aberdeen, Inverness, Scrabster and Central Scotland, is investing £1.5 million in new vehicles.
Following on from acquiring vehicles and containers in March to fulfil a contract with Orkney Island Council, it has had six new tractor units delivered to Aberdeen. Supplied by MAN Truck and Bus Ltd, the TGX 26.470 6×2 tractor units are equipped with latest safety and environmental features.
“This is a significant and strategic expansion for Northwards,” said managing director, Michael Porter, “the latest batch of trucks will be, predominantly, operating out of Aberdeen connecting the Northern Isles ferry terminal with delivery points in Central Scotland. The replaced trucks will be redeployed to Lerwick and Cumbernauld to service an increasing volume of daily freight through our pallet network into Scotland, also to support our clients in the renewable energy and aquaculture sector.”
