Plantforce gets heavy

Plantforce has invested in nine new  lorries and trailers to kick start a new heavy haulage division to offer transport of heavy plant and machinery around the UK.

The company selected Volvo Trucks as its preferred supplier for this latest round of investment that sees a range of FL four-wheel rigid beavertails, FM 430 eight-wheel rigid beavertails, FH 540 6 three axle with step frame trailers in addition to FH 540 and flagship FH16 750 four axle with step frame trailers join the fleet of existing trucks.

With all of the fleet Euro 6 compliant and fitted with the Volvo Connect telematics system, Plantforce has the ability to manage their fleet effectively to maximise their efficiency, whilst customers can utilise a tracker system installed on all trucks to give an extra level of visibility to exactly where the vehicle is and calculate an accurate arrival time.

Heavy haulage transport manager, Ian Blackburn said: “I am very excited to be launching this division. Our team has built a real depth of knowledge managing the transport of our fleet of hire machines, which puts us in a great position to use this knowledge to support others moving their plant and heavy machinery – adding real value at a competitive rate.”
