Volvo Trucks has secured a conquest deal with Slam Transport for 10 FH with I-Save 4×2 tractor units, becoming the first Volvos in the customer’s 225-strong fleet for more than six years. They are all additional vehicles to support business growth.
The Coventry-based business selected the FH with I-Save after recording great fuel economy and driver feedback from a demonstrator supplied by Rory Kelly, Transport Solutions Executive at Volvo Truck and Bus Centre East Anglia.
The new trucks benefit from Volvo’s D13TC Euro-6 Step D engine, rated to 460 hp, with turbo-compounding and updated fuel-efficiency features. This allows them to drive at lower revs and a higher gear for a longer time, contributing to a smoother, quieter and more fuel-efficient journey.
