“These trucks are already matching the fleet average in terms of fuel efficiency which, considering they’re still virtually brand new, is very impressive. Once they start to bed in the mpg performance is only going to get better.”

City West Commercials provided the vehicles and also supplied Peter Green Chilled in July, with five 6×2 Actros tractors the first Mercedes-Benz trucks in the fleet.

Peter Green Chilled runs 90 trucks, mostly 6×2 tractors pulling Schmitz Cargobull refrigerated trailers.

“We’ve had a few Mercedes in the past which we acquired through acquisitions, including that of local haulier Stotts Transport four years ago. They’ve always been reliable and cost-effective to operate, so I’m confident that with the back-up of Mercedes-Benz both here in the UK and on the Continent our new tractor units will prove a wise investment,” Davis says.
