Iceland orders 80 Renault tractors and rigids

Flintshire, UK:  Frozen food retailer Iceland has ordered 80 Renault trucks after its inaugural purchase of 9 units in 2009 and delivered in July 2011.

Besides the 18-tonne trucks 270.18 Midlum rigids, with refrigeration bodies, the company also ordered 71 Premium 4×2 460.18 EEV eco-friendly tractor units, with Privilege cabs, which were delivered between October 2011 and January 2012.  This order takes Renault’s share of the 300 fleet to 40%.

David Rowlands, Iceland’s planning and contracts manager said: “Our Premium tractor units are performing well and the customer service from Renault Trucks has been excellent, including the Optifuel Infomax fleet management downloads.”

Iceland also chose to add further Renault trucks to the fleet for “the environmental benefits of the Premium’s EEV engine, the competitive package and the fuel efficiency record” said a Renault spokesperson.
