How will truck designs keep up with the whirlwind of new urban legislation? Where is it headed when it comes to alternative fuels or autonomous trucks? What, in fact, does the future look like for the road haulage sector? Representatives from MAN, Daf, Iveco and Scania addressed these questions and more at last month’s Microlise Transport Conference, where they took place in a panel debate hosted by Motor Transport news editor Chris Druce.
Hermes UK has added 54 Euro-6 Dafs from hire firm Ryder to its fleet, as well as renewing a three-year tyre-management contract with Michelin Solutions.
Scania will launch the first of its much-anticipated range of new trucks on 23 August, starting with the public debut of the first units designed for the European long-haul sector.
Menzies Distribution is replacing half of its 240-strong LGV fleet with 110 Euro-5 Ivecos, on hire from Ryder.
