Hicks goes for New Actros

  • 03 June 2013
  • By Christopher Walton

Caldicot, Monmouthshire-based Hicks Logistics has celebrated its 35th birthday by taking delivery of a specially liveried Euro-5 Mercedes-Benz New Actros from Euro Commercials (South Wales).

The haulier, which specialises in pulling bulk timber, has not run a Mercedes on its fleet for 20 years but has taken delivery of six Mercedes so far this year, comprising of two New Actros units and four long-distance Actros units, as it looks to improve its fuel consumption levels.

MD Terry Hicks said: “The fleet average is 8mpg, but the New Actros is already up to 8.5mpg. These are still early days, though, so there’s every reason to think this figure will improve further as we get more miles under our belt.”

He added: “We ordered our first New Actros on a ‘suck it and see’ basis. Well: we’ve tried it, and we like it very much.”
