FMX Tractor Units For Bioresources Fleet

WARRINGTON based United Utilities has taken delivery of two new Volvo FMX 6×4 tractor units with sleeper cabs, for operation with bulk tipping trailers on the bioresources side of its business.
United Utilities has a strong relationship with the Swedish manufacturer and its long established local dealer Thomas Hardie Commercials (THC), having bought Volvos since the late 1980s. The tractors join an influx of Volvo trucks recently added to its 350 strong HGV fleet, including two FMX 8×4 tippers.
Martin Shaw, regional logistics and industrial cleaning manager at United Utilities, said: “Our vehicles work on five year asset management periods, so when it was time to refresh our contracts, we shared our vehicle specifications and requirements with all the major players in the industry. Volvo has been awarded the contract for the past two renewals as its vehicles have consistently proven to be the best fit for our operation. Through Thomas Hardie Commercials, Volvo has an excellent dealer support network in the north west.”
