Wolseley announces investment of over £15m in its commercial fleet
Wolseley is investing over £15 million in its commercial fleet, with more than 200 new vehicles equipped with industry leading features such as, the latest camera and weighing technology, together with driver behaviour tracking.
The new vehicles, which are being introduced over the next 12 months, also provide better fuel consumption, helping to reduce carbon emissions. The new vehicles will be used to deliver stock to Wolseley branches across the UK.
The new Wolseley commercial fleet includes 88 Mercedes Sprinter vans, 51 Volvo 26-tonne trucks, 57 DAF trucks - which range from 7.5 tonne to 18 tonne - and seven DAF XF next generation 44-tonne trucks.
Feedback from Wolseley drivers, who are enjoying the improved specifications - which include automatic gear boxes, air conditioning, and a higher spec interior - has already been positive.
Alan Newton, Head of Transport at Wolseley, said: “Driver safety and the safety of other road users is paramount to Wolseley and played a major part in deciding the new vehicles for our commercial fleet. All of our new vehicles are fitted with the latest camera technology and driver behaviour tracking to ensure that all journeys are as safe as possible.”
