Co Laois-based timber firm CJ Sheeran has taken delivery of six Volvo FH 460 4×2 tractor units – its first ever new trucks.
Supplied by Irish Commercials via a contract hire deal from Volvo Financial Services, each is fitted with the 460hp D13K engine, a 12-speed I-Shift automated gearbox and a Globetrotter cab.
They will work double-shifts six days a week, and are expected to cover around 100,000km a year delivering timber and pallets throughout Ireland.
The vehicles were supplied with the manufacturer’s Gold Contract repair and maintenance cover and its Dynafleet fleet management system.
Mark Sheeran, managing director at CJ Sheeran, commented on the deal: “Our drivers road tested the trucks over a number of days and the Volvo FH was the clear favourite.
“They loved the interior quality, space inside the cab and the overall driving experience. It was a fairly simple choice in the end – Volvo offered the best fuel figures with a truck our drivers loved.”
