Premier Logistics opts for Euro-5 engine technology

Leicester-based Pall-Ex member Premier Logistics has enhanced its fleet with 10 new Actros units, choosing Euro-5 rather than Euro-6 after concerns about the complexity and cost of the latter.

MD Lee Christopher has ordered 10 Mercedes-Benz trucks with dealer Mertrux on a three-year hire purchase deal for delivery this September.

Christopher said he had stayed away from Euro-6 because it is untried as a technology. “Euro-6 is complicated from the vehicle maintenance angle and £8,000 to £10,000 more per unit than Euro-5,” he said.

The trucks, which come with a two-year RM package, will ultimately take the feet to 65 and will be owned outright, because “if you’re paying all that money every month I like to get something back”.

Premier Logistics has also recently taking delivery of a 30 trailers from SDC in a mixture of configurations including double decks, and equipped with a mixture of tail lifts and Moffetts forklifts.
