BAGGED: First Euro VI Volvos for Neill and Brown
East Yorkshire-based Neill and Brown Global Logistics have invested in their first Euro VI Volvo FH tractor units.
The pair join the company’s 40-strong fleet, becoming the first captures in a five-year-long replacement plan.
They are powered by Volvo’s D13K-500, Euro VI-compliant engine, rated at 500hp.
The 6×2, Globetrotter-cabbed tractor units are fitted with Volvo’s I-Shift automated gearbox and I-See.
Meanwhile, Volvo I-Park Cool – an integrated parking cooler system – is also fitted to maintain a comfortable in-cab temperature.
Neill and Brown claim fuel efficiency was the deciding factor when purchasing the new trucks, which were supplied by Hull-based Crossroads Truck and Bus.
