MacIntyre Transport chooses Renault Range T for its first Euro-6 truck

  • 28 January 2014
  • By Ashleigh Wight

Container haulier MacIntyre Transport has taken delivery of a Renault Trucks Range T 460hp tractor unit.

The operator’s first Euro-6 truck has been leased from Renault Trucks Felixstowe and takes its mixed-marque fleet of 44-tonners to 155.

The truck is fitted with full air management kit, Renault Trucks’ Fuel Eco pack and a five month free trial of its Optifleet telematics system.

MD Paul Miller said: “Renault Trucks Felixstowe approached us with the right deal at the right time and although we normally lease over three or four years, we decided that a 24 month lease gave us enough time to evaluate the Range T in operation.”

The tractor unit has been added to the fleet as part of its organic growth strategy, which will see it built on its fleets at Felixstowe and Southampton.

The Renault T will be covering 1,400 to 1,600 miles per week and will run out of the operator’s Felixstowe hub.

Chairman Harvey MacIntyre said it took 10 new vehicles last year in the hope of boosting its turnover, but only achieved half of its aim due to a dwindling number of subcontractors.

“We’re backfilling [with new vehicles] because the subcontractor element is decreasing,” said MacIntyre.
