MILLERS OILS SELECTS FUEL EFFICIENT RENAULT TRUCKS AND BRS IN MAJOR FLEET OVERHAUL

 

As part of a major revitalisation of its fleet, Millers Oils, one of the UK's leading independent blenders of advanced lubricants, oils and fuel additives, has invested in two fuel-efficient Renault Trucks Range Ts as the latest additions to its line-up.

The 26-tonne Range T380 6x2 rigid curtainsided vehicles have been supplied on a 6-year contract hire deal through BRS Ltd and follow two Renault Range D Wide 18t curtainsiders which have been running successfully on Millers Oils' nine-strong HGV fleet since 2014.

 

Delivering lubricants across the UK, the new Range T380 sleeper cabs with Roco Truck Bodies' rigid curtains, Mellor Flow Trans' Inter Pump Hydraulics and full rear closure tail lifts, are specified with the Renault Trucks Comfort Pack and Fuel Eco Pack. The cabs are equipped with the driver in mind, with options including air-suspended seats, TV, fridge and microwave.

 

Millers Oils' operations team's comfort was key in their new vehicle selection, as Managing Director, Jamie Ryan, explains: "Our drivers are out on the road for 2 or 3 days at a time, so it's vital that we create an environment where they feel appreciated for the great work that they do. I was first introduced to the Range T two years ago at the CV Show; I sat in the truck and was extremely impressed by the size and comfort of the cab. Our drivers' satisfaction is highly catered for in these top spec Range Ts and we've even added extras such as air suspended seats, three ambient lighting modes, microwave, fridge, TV and DVD player - they really are a 'home from home' !"
