Moody Logistics & Storage has taken delivery of its first pair of Iveco S-Way tractor units from dealer, North East Truck & Van.
The two trucks, with 6×2 steering mid-lift chassis, feature the Cursor 11 engine at 480hp as well as the 12-speed Hi-Tronix automated gearbox.
They will mainly be used to pull double-decker trailers between the Pall-Ex Hub in Leicester and Moody’s HQ in Cramlington, north of Newcastle on the night shift.
The tractor units feature air-suspended, swivelling passenger seats in conjunction with a three-piece folding lower bunk with drop-down table to maximise interior space on rest periods.
Their AS sleeper cabs have a 2.15m standing height and a completely redesigned driving position.
Also included is Hi-Comfort seating, seven inch touchscreen infotainment system with integrated navigation, door blinds and automatic climate control as part of the driving comfort plus pack.
Alongside first aid kits, forward-facing, driver and flank camera kits are installed, including reversing cameras that display the view behind the trailer in the cab.
The trucks come with a two-year repair and maintenance package.
A total of 90 per cent of the 28-strong Moody Logistics & Storage truck fleet is made up of Iveco 18t Eurocargo rigid and 44t Stralis tractors.
Moody Logistics & Storage’s managing director, Caroline Moody said: “We’ve always run nearly all Iveco, so our in-house maintenance team know them inside and out.
“In terms of total cost of ownership and upfront cost, they offer good value, and we run the Ivecos to around a million kilometres each, easily.”
