Last two Renault Magnums sold in UK

Portsmouth-based international freight forwarder, Freight Transport has taken delivery of the last two Renault Magnums to be sold in the UK. The two Renault Magnum 480.25 6×2 tractor units join the company’s 25-strong fleet.

The Magnums will run mostly on long-haul journeys to southern France, transporting specialist goods from the company’s base in Portsmouth said Andy Bearryman, Freight Transport’s managing director. “The new trucks will operate on our longer distance routes and so driver comfort is a priority. The Magnum offers excellent on-board comfort, with a spacious cab and excellent storage.”

First launched in 1990, the Magnum won “International Truck of the Year” in 1991. Its spacious 2.5m-wide cab with a flat floor and generous headroom became a favourite with long-distance drivers. It is succeeded by Renault’s new long-distance, Euro-6 “T” range due to arrive in the UK in the autumn.

The Magnums were supplied through Renault Trucks distributor, Sparks Commercial Services replacing Scania and Daf on Freight Transport’s fleet.
