Prompt Transport commits to Volvo for fleet transition

Prompt Transport is switching its entire artic fleet over to Volvo and has already taken delivery of four new FH Globetrotter 6×2 tractor units with I-Save.

Lee Parker, Prompt director, said: “We had previously run with one manufacturer for more than two decades.

“However, we were having one or two issues so at the start of 2022 we decided to trial demonstrators from three other marques and Volvo came out as the clear winner.

“With these four latest arrivals, we are up to nine FHs and are planning to replace the remaining 12 tractor units we operate over the course of the next few years. The drivers absolutely love them, and we are very happy with how the move has gone so far.”

The Bristol company said the transition was already providing benefits, with fuel savings of around 1.5mpg being achieved in comparison to the HGVs being replaced.

The tractor units are being used for general haulage work and will cover in the region of 120,000km a year.
