Volvo Trucks has made its debut at Huddersfield based Hanson Logistics with the supply of a new FH540 Globetrotter XL 6x2 pusher axle tractor unit, equipped with I-Shift Dual Clutch transmission. The new vehicle is operating exclusively on the firm’s long-standing contract with Baerlocher UK. Supplied by Crossroads Truck & Bus in Birstall, the Volvo joins a fleet of five trucks and has been finished in Millennium Silver Metallic, with enhanced factory paint. “After recommendations from our drivers and contacts at WG Tankers, the move to Volvo was an easy decision,” said Mark Henighan, operations director at Hanson Logistics. “The previous tractor unit was proving to be incompatible, so we needed a quality truck that could offer the right solution.” Power is provided by Volvo’s D13K Euro 6 engine rated at 540hp and producing up to 2,600Nm of torque between 1,000 and 1,450 rev/min.
