CV Show 2014: Bedfords Transport orders 47 Ivecos

  • By Will Shiers

Bedfords Transport placed an order for 47 Euro-6 Ivecos at the CV Show. The trucks, a mix of 39 Stralis Hi-Way 460s, seven 18-tonne Eurocargos and a 7.5-tonne Eurocargo, join a predominantly Iveco fleet.

Lee Nichols, purchasing consultant at West Yorkshire-based Bedfords Transport explains that the trucks were chosen following a successful trial, in which they proved to have a lower fixed cost than rivals. He and director Philip Lockwood (pictured right) also cite a good relationship with supplying dealer Northern Commercials in Brighouse, and a high level of driver acceptance as reasons why its fleet is now 70% Iveco.

He is confident that the latest Hi-Ways will be at least as fuel efficient as the Euro-5 EcoStralis tractors on its fleet.

Bedfords Transport also purchased 40 Lawrence David semi-trailers at the show, a mix of 20 single- and 20 double-deckers.
