Guest Truck & Van in £1.2m fashion truck deal

A West Midlands headquartered commercial vehicle dealer has supplied 14 new customised trucks to a global freight company in a deal worth over £1.2m.

Transmec, which is responsible for transporting a large proportion of Britain's fashion and automotive freight around the UK & Europe, has chosen high specification Iveco Stralis models.

Imran Mohammed, financial controller at Transmec said: "We chose this dealer and manufacturer combination because of the flexibility, value and good customer service they have offered. We always get a good deal with Guests."

Managing director at Guest Truck and Van, Robert Spittle said: "Transmec have taken the time to look at exactly what they need from a truck for the sort of operation it is running.

"Modern commercial fleets are about efficiency, performance and maximising productivity. That means intelligent engineering and designing the cab around drivers who want a high level of comfort, infotainment and an excellent working environment. The Transmec trucks have sleeper cabs and are even equipped with a high capacity fridge.

"It's always satisfying and impressive to see a convoy of vehicles leaving our forecourt to begin a life as part of a hard-working fleet."

The 480hp IVECO Stralis trucks are fitted with the latest height intuitive satnav and road safety systems including driver attention support as well as driver comforts like fridges and infotainment system.
