RGF Logistics has "no fear" of Euro-6

  • 21 June 2013
  • By Kevin Swallow

Midlands-based haulier RGF Logistics said it has no fear of the ‘latest technology’ after buying its first Euro-6 truck, a Scania G445 tractor unit.

Gary Ford, MD of the Birmingham-based operator, said the addition of the Euro-6 truck will give RGF Logistics the chance to compare it like-for-like with existing Euro-5 vehicles.

“We currently operate 420/440 Euro-5 Scania trucks and wanted to compare against the new Euro-6 model. RGF Logistics is happy to be a leading light in the road transport industry and have no fear of the latest technology and its benefits to future generations,” he said.

The G445 6×2 Highline will operate out the operators depot in Garrett’s Green and be part of more than 60 vehicles on the fleet. It sourced the truck from local Scania dealer Keltruck.

Last year, Commercial Motor roadtested the first Euro-6 truck in the UK, a Scania G440 4×2 tractor unit with a Highline cab (CM, 9 May 2012). It produced class leading fuel returns at 40 tonnes achieving 9.2mpg with 2.7% AdBlue use, which goes some way to countering a price hike to cover the advancement in technology and a nominal kerbweight increase.

From 1 January 2014, Euro-6 emission level for trucks becomes legislation.
