DEBUT: Isuzu joins Pedigree Wholesale
Pedigree Wholesale have upgraded their 7.5tonne rigid distribution fleet and invested in their first-ever Isuzu.
The pet and aquatic wholesaler have bagged a brand-new Isuzu Forward N75.190 7.5tonne curtainside-bodied rigid, fitted with Easyshift semi-automated transmission and rear, tuck-away tail lift.
It is operating out of the company’s depot in Leeds and is also the first of the company’s distribution vehicles to carry their newly-designed corporate livery.
Steve Brown, Managing Director of Pedigree Wholesale, said; “Within our distribution operation, we have a specific requirement for 7.5tonne vehicles for those regional deliveries that require a smaller footprint of vehicle without sacrificing either payload or economy.
“After careful consideration, we felt that the Isuzu 7.5tonner ticked all the right boxes for us concerning emissions, fuel economy, payload, whole life costs and reliability.
“We feel it will be an exciting and productive addition to our 27-strong vehicle fleet.”
Pedigree Wholesale anticipate the Isuzu will cover between 80,000 and 100,000km per annum over a six-year working life.
Currently the vehicle is delivering products to customers throughout North Wales, the North of England and the Scottish Borders.
Keith Child, Marketing Director of Isuzu Truck UK, said: “Sporting the new Pedigree Wholesale livery, the first Isuzu in its fleet really does stand out well.
“It will certainly help to reinforce the company’s market presence out on the UK roads.
“With an intensive distribution-cycle planned over its working life, the proven attributes of the Isuzu 7.5tonner will certainly come into their own and give the company the level of performance and reliability that it’s looking for from such a vehicle.”
