To meet the challenge of its changing distribution patterns, whilst also increasing journey time productivity, South West company Charles Saunders Food Service Ltd recently made the switch from 7.5 tonne to 11 tonne delivery vehicles, with the addition of ten new Isuzu Forward 11 tonne rigids into its 35 strong refrigerated transport fleet.

As part of a rolling fleet replacement programme over the past three years, St Austell Brewery has introduced 10 new Isuzu 7.5tonne rigids into its regional distribution fleet during that time. With the latest addition of the four new Isuzu Forward 7.5 tonners, there are now 20 Isuzu trucks in total operating under the colours of St Austell Brewery.

As leading drinks distribution company LWC Drinks Ltd expands its UK operation by opening an additional depot in the South East, the Manchester-based company has based its latest 11 tonne Isuzu rigid at the new location in Slough, where it is delivering kegs, cases, wines and spirits to customers in the London conurbation.
