Castledene Transport has taken delivery of a new Volvo FH 500 6x2 tractor unit, with a special livery celebrating its 45th anniversary.

Supplied by MC Truck & Bus, the truck joins a 40-strong commercial vehicle fleet of which 90% is now Volvo-supplied.

The FH Globetrotter XL with I-Save will carry out general haulage work on routes across the UK.

Matt Clarke, Castledene’s operations director, said: “The majority of our fleet has been Volvo for many years now and we’ve come to really embrace the product for its reliability, comfort and overall performance.

“What shines through in our opinion is the level of service we receive, which is truly second to none - its team is premier league while other manufacturers are still playing Sunday league.

“Whenever we need to call on MC Truck & Bus, we know for certain that they’ll work quickly and diligently to get the job done, all while keeping us fully up to date with what exactly is happening. That is a massive help when it comes to managing our fleet.”
