Matthew James goes Euro 6

Mar 18, 2014
Erith-based Matthew James Removals & Storage has invested in two new Euro 6 Scania Streamline 450s.

The two new trucks are built to a high specification with alloy wheels, retarder, fridge, freezer, microwave, air conditioning and full air suspension: every axle rides on air.  One of the vehicles is an addition to the fleet and the other a replacement for an existing vehicle, bringing Matthew James' fleet to 26 vehicles.  The two new trucks will mostly be used for European work. 

 

Chris Bishop, Transport Manager, said: "Both vehicles will be built as 4,000 cu ft draw bars, with nine container doors – to allow multiple drops in Europe - and the facility to transport cars.  Most of our existing fleet is Euro 4 and Euro 5, we're building for the future with these for when the Euro 6 Standard comes into force. They'll be more environmentally friendly but we'll have to wait and see if they prove to be more fuel efficient too."

 

"Both vehicles are high spec", said Chris, "but in comparison to Matt's current project, they're budget!"  (See The Mover, February 2014, page 14.)
