More and more organisations are beginning to appreciate the effective and cost-efficient model of a palletised freight distribution by means of pallet networks such as Palletforce. That’s why, combined with recent year on year growth in this area of the business, in January 2016, RCS Logistics Ltd., a third party logistics supplier located in Corby, at the heart of UK logistics operations, took delivery of a Scania P250 DB 4X2 MNA Day Cab, supplied by TruckEast.
The P250 rigid vehicle benefits from reduced weight yet extra payload space, and the shorter cab and optimal axle placement is ideally suited to the urban deliveries that RCS Logistics finds itself making more and more frequently. The Scania short cabs feature ergonomically designed seating and adjustable steering wheels, guaranteeing a first-class driving experience.
The vehicle, supplied by TruckEast Ltd, one of the largest independently-owned commercial vehicle dealers in the UK with a focus on the Eastern Counties, sports RCS Logistics’ distinctive blue and yellow livery on its curtain side body, supplied by Kurt Hobbs Coachworks. This latest addition brings RCS Logistics’ fleet to a total of 34 vehicles including artics, rigids and vans, meaning they’re able to deliver all consignments, no matter the size or weight. Simon Westley, Transport Operations Manager for RCS Logistics added, “I am delighted with the purchase of the Scania P250 which continues RCS Logistics’ asset renewal programme. The addition of the Scania P250 reinforces our commitment to continued development, our trust in the Scania product and the reliability of the aftersales service from our partner, TruckEast”.
RCS Logistics and TruckEast began their relationship almost two decades ago and have gone from strength to strength. Pete McGowan, Sales Manager at TruckEast added, “TruckEast have been associated with RCS Logistics for over 18-years. In that time we have come from supplying a single Scania truck to supplying well over 20 vehicles. Our relationship has grown ever stronger with the convenient location of one of our twelve service depots, as well as our Specialist Services depot, both located in Corby. We have worked together over the years to bring excellent local service to many operators in & around the Corby area. RCS Logistics’ latest additional to their fleet sees our relationship continues to evolve and grow stronger year on year.”
