Owens Group has begun taking delivery of 30 new Volvo tractor units, having returned to the marque for the first time since 2005 two years ago.


The haulier has ordered 17 Volvo FH 460 with ISave Globetrotter 6x2s and 13 FM 460 Globetrotter 6x2 trucks.

Doug Jeffery, Owens Group commercial director, said: “Our first batch of Volvos quickly proved to be extremely reliable while also providing the comfort and positive driving experience our drivers deserve.

“Those factors, combined with the trucks’ fuel performance, made it an easy decision to go with Volvo this time around too.”

With 400 trucks on the haulage firm’s fleet, Volvo now accounts for a round a quarter of the total. Its latest arrivals will be based across the customer’s depots in south and west Wales, where they will be used to provide delivery services to blue-chip customers.

The latest models were supplied by Truck and Bus Wales and West.
