Cambridgeshire-based G. Webb Haulage has purchased its first Volvo truck since 2011 – a Volvo FM 8×4 rigid with lifting rear axle – a unique solution only available from Volvo Trucks.

The customer, which specialises in the haulage and disposal of all types of contaminated soils and wastes in bulk, chose the latest vehicle as part of efforts to reduce the company’s fuel use.

Delivered by Volvo Truck and Bus Centre East Anglia, the FM, which replaces a rival marque, will be in operation five-days-a-week and cover up to 120,000 km annually. It is powered by the proven Volvo D11K Euro 6, Step D, diesel engine which produces 430 hp, plus up to 2,050 Nm of torque.
