AB Agri has strengthened its relationship with Volvo Trucks, with the pig and poultry feed manufacturing side of its business taking on 12 new Volvo FM 460 Globetrotter 6x2 tractor units. Supplied by Volvo Truck and Bus Centre South & East, the FMs join a 118 strong truck fleet, 30% provided by Volvo. The new additions will be used for bulk animal feed work, five operating from ABN’s site in Bury St. Edmunds, one based in Leeds and the remaining six due for delivery later this year. Mark Hope, transport services contract manager at AB Agri, said: “Our ABN mills don’t have their own fleet maintenance teams, so good, reliable service is paramount to all our transport managers. Knowing they can get support locally is key. Our mill in Bury St. Edmunds has a strong relationship with the local dealer.” Each FM is powered by Volvo’s D13K engine, producing up to 460hp and 2,300Nm of torque, and will pull a combination of Priden, Muldoon and Wilcox triaxle bulk blowing tipping trailers.
