Clugston Distribution, the UK independent bulk tanker specialists, has announced a further £1.2m investment to develop its tanker fleet capability.
Building on its long-term relationship with Renault, the company has ordered three new T460 6x2 low cab mini mid lift tractors for use in the petroleum sector and five replacement Renault T460 6x2 tractors for its food and cement fleet. Five are being delivered with standard height cabs, again using the mini mid lift solution to reduce weight. All the new trucks will be fitted with Lytx forward facing camera systems.
Further investment has been committed for three additional 42,000 litre fuel tankers from Cisternas Cobo. Two are going on fleet in March to support Clugston's expanding fuel operations, with the third to be exhibited by Cobo at this year's FPS Expo in Liverpool on 20th - 21st April, on the Cobo stand 11/48. By June, Clugston Distribution will have 18 fuel tanker/tractor combinations operational across the UK.
Three replacement bulk flour tipping silo tankers have also been ordered from Feldbinder. The 60m3 capacity vehicles have been purchased to replace three existing tankers on Clugston Distribution's expanded shared user flour and bulk dried food operations.
David Heath, head of logistics at Clugston Distribution said, "We are really looking forward to 2016. The renewed investment will further consolidate our position in three strategic markets; food, fuel and industrial powder logistics."
