BAGGED: Premier Logistics’ new additions
Leicester-based Premier Logistics have purchased their first Renault trucks after obtaining eight used Premium tractor units.
Supplied by Renault Trucks Coventry, the company have bagged five Renault Premium 460.25 6×2 DXi and three Renault Premium 450.25 6×2 DXi variants.
All have Optidriver+ automated gearboxes and are Truckplus Premium Selection vehicles, offering a 12-month manufacturer’s driveline warranty and mileage at less than 300,000km.
The Euro V Premiums are working on Premier Logistics’ 24/7 trunking operation, delivering across the UK on various contracts.
They are each expected to cover between 150,000 and 175,000km every year and will be maintained at Premier Logistics’ new in-house vehicle maintenance facility based at their new 12acre headquarters in Bardon.
Lee Christopher, Managing Director of Premier Logistics, said: “We looked for low mileage quality used trucks that will give us good flexibility run over three years.
“The Premiums offered great value for money, the DXi running gear is proven and the 12months manufacturer’s driveline warranty and Truckplus checks offered with the Premium Selection programme made a difference.
“It’s a great truck to be driving, with excellent all-round visibility, economy and usability.
“They look great in our livery, too!”
