Fresh produce wholesaler Langridge Organic Products has put into service another seven Isuzu N75.190 refrigerated trucks after finding that they ticked the box for payload, footprint and reliability.

The Feltham business has been steadily expanding its fleet over the last eight years and Isuzus now account for 60% of its vehicles.

Two of the new trucks are specified with temperature-controlled bodies manufactured by local company TLC Bodies, whilst the remaining five new Isuzu chassis have had existing Paneltex refrigerated bodies refurbished and swapped from five incumbent Isuzus that have now been replaced.

“Quite simply, we find that the Isuzus are very much like our products in that they have all the good things we need and none of the bad,” said Alex Pearce, Langridge MD.

“When we first started specifying Isuzus in the fleet, it was the payload that really attracted us to the brand, easily far better than any other manufacturer at 7.5 tonne GVW.

“As we deliver regularly within the M25 conurbation, the compact footprint of the Isuzu chassis was also a significant factor which, combined with the Easyshift automated gearbox, made the trucks very easy to drive in built-up urban areas.”
