HERTFORDSHIRE BREWER McMullen & Sons has taken delivery of its first Volvo truck.
The FL 18-tonne rigid, supplied by Volvo Truck and Bus Centre in Enfield, London, is equipped with Volvo’s I-Sync automated transmission. It also features the brewer's new livery depicting its beers, including AK and Country Bitter.
Leigh Knight, McMullen & Sons distribution manager, says: "We were impressed with Volvo’s demonstrator and its I-Sync automated gearbox suits our needs ideally.
“Whether they’re down country lanes or in London, it’s in the nature of the deliveries we do that they tend to require a lot of gear changes – which the I-Sync eliminates completely.” The brewer runs a fleet of six vehicles, five of which are Ivecos.
