Black Sheep Brewery flocks to Volvo

  • 17 July 2013
  • By Christopher Walton

North Yorkshire’s Black Sheep Brewery has taken delivery of three Volvos – the first of the marque to join its eight-strong fleet.

Two 500hp FH 6×2 44-tonners are joined by a  420hp 18-tonne FL 4×2. They were sourced from Crossroads Truck and Bus at Boroughbridge.

The FH units will handle primary distribution duties to wholesalers’ and retailers’ DCs, while the FL will be double-manned and will make deliveries to pubs.

All are on Volvo repair and maintenance contracts, which will see the trucks being dropped off at the dealership for scheduled O-licence inspections at 6pm, ready for collection by 6am the following morning.

Crossroads will also be carrying out trailer main-tenance for Black Sheep Brewery. Its trailer fleet includes a Lawrence David chilled curtainsider that doubles up as a mobile bar for use at outdoor shows.

Ian Middleton, group sales director of Crossroads Truck and Bus, said: “Crossroads are absolutely delighted to have secured this piece of business and to be associated with such a strong Yorkshire brand as Black Sheep Brewery.”
