Leading providers of temperature-controlled warehousing and logistical services to the Food Industry, Ardboe Coldstore located in County Tyrone, Northern Ireland, has recently expanded its fleet with the delivery of a new Volvo FH-500 tractor unit supplied by Dennison Commercials Limited.
Operating at two sites in Northern Ireland at Ardboe, County Tyrone and Campsie in Derry / Londonderry, Ardboe Coldstore has the capability to store and manage in excess of 40,000 pallets of foodstuff on behalf of ‘blue chip’ food manufacturing customers throughout Ireland, the United Kingdom and mainland Europe. The truck will complement their existing fleet of mainly Volvo trucks and will be utilised on refrigerated haulage duties.
The specification of the truck includes Dynafleet telematics, an I-Shift automated gearbox, fridge and leather interior, so the new truck will be a welcome addition to Ardboe Coldstore’s already Volvo-strong fleet.
Commenting on the new addition to the fleet, Managing Director Eugene Carson stated; “We are delighted to have purchased another Volvo from Dennison Commercials. As we continue to invest in and expand our business, it is important that our transport fleet is reliable for our business needs and to provide uninterrupted service to our customer base.”
He added, “Over recent years we have been impressed with the efficiency, reliability, comfort and safety of our Volvo trucks, not to mention the quality of service provided by Dennison Commercials.”
