Volvo Secures Flagship Order

WARTON Freight Services has marked 30 years in the haulage industry by putting a new Volvo FH 8×2 rigid onto the road, equipped with a 70 tonne/metre Fassi crane.
The West Thurrock based family-owned business had been monitoring the performance of six seed Volvos in its 58 strong fleet during the last two years.
Steve Barclay, director at Warton Freight Services, said: “We’d heard good things about Volvo and we wanted to see how they would perform. I was invited for a visit to the Volvo factory in Sweden and I was really impressed with the design and quality of the product. This led us to take on two FH tractors, two FM 8×2 rigids and two FM 6×2 rigids and compare them closely to what we had been running. It was the real-world performance that put them in pole position for this latest order.
