DELIVERY: Four New Actros for Apollo
Apollo Foods have taken delivery of four Mercedes-Benz New Actros 18tonners with narrow StreamSpace cabs.
The Glasgow-based company, who supply chilled, frozen and ambient products to caterers, restaurants and fast food outlets, received their new additions via Western Commercial.
All four vehicles, which are 1842 models with 421hp straight-six engines, are the subject of seven-year Mercedes-Benz Repair and Maintenance Contracts.
They are paired with 12-speed Mercedes PowerShift 3 automated transmission and feature insulated, multi-temperature bodies by Tekbo, of Glasgow.
Kamran Bashir, Fleet Manager at Apollo Foods, said: “We were a driver short last week so I took one of the New Actros out myself and was very impressed.
“Mercedes-Benz has done a great job with this truck.
“The previous model was good but the latest one is a lot better in terms of cab comfort and I particularly like the new transmission, which is much smoother.”
