First Ivecos for Knights of Old

  • 29 August 2012
  • By Chris Druce

Knights of Old has taken delivery of its first ever Ivecos.

Supplied by dealer Stormont Truck Van, the Kettering, Northamptonshire-based firm has taken on 10 Eurocargo 7.5-tonners and two Eurocargo 18-tonners.

Although Knights of Old is traditionally a Scania-heavy fleet, Mainland, which it bought in December of last year, mainly runs Iveco rigids.

Ian Beattie, MD of Knights of Old, says: “Ivecos were the mainstay of the Mainland Group fleet and have delivered exemplary service since our two operations merged last year.

“We’ve been impressed with their competitive fuel economy and payload capacity; replacing like for live was an obvious choice.”

As part of the integration plan, the combined fleet of 170 trucks and 192 trailers will ultimately run in Knights’ livery.

However, Scania remains very much part of the picture with 10 new tractor units due towards the end of this month, and 10 more rigids coming mid-October. Another 10 tractors are due to arrive early in 2013, which will make the fleet completely Euro-5.
