Andrews Sykes unveil new fleet of large goods vehicles

We are pleased to announce a significant investment in a new fleet of large goods vehicles – each with a capacity of up to 18 tons. These new additions to our fleet will ensure delivery times are cut further and that the transportation of heavy duty units can be completed in accordance with stringent safety guidelines.

Richard Galvin says: “Our commitment to improving our service is evidenced by us purchasing a significant number of new lorries, which will only benefit our expanding customer base. This recent investment is symptomatic of the company’s success in recent months and is necessary to ensure we can continue to accommodate growing demand.

“Of course, we have taken steps to guarantee our lorries run economically and comply with new rules outlined by the European Commission. They even feature state-of-the-art dashcam technology, providing added security.”

These vehicles are fitted with an HMF 2620K2 crane that has a maximum lift capacity of 5600 kilograms and reach of 8.2 metres, allowing the driver to seamlessly place items on customer sites. For safety, the cranes are operated using a remote control so that the driver can work with the load as it is being moved.

The lorries each have a Euro 6-approved engine and come fitted with a sidescan radar, audible left turn alarm and reversing cameras. They are also fully compliant with all Construction Logistics and Community Safety legislation (CLOCS), exceeding all necessary standards within the code of practice.

Maintaining and modernising our fleet is an integral part of our operational targets and follows recent investment in company depots and employees – all to ensure the service we provide continues to surpass expectations.
