Suttons Tankers have unveiled commemorative livery to celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.

The Union Jack design is emblazoned across the front and sides of one of the new Volvo FH Globetrotter units, which were recently introduced to the fleet.

Suttons invested £15m in the new units to ensure that long distance and overnight drivers remain comfortable and well rested throughout their shifts.

The Volvo FH Globetrotter features a number of upgrades to improve driver comfort such as LED headlamps, adaptive cruise control, a large fridge/freezer, an integrated microwave, comfortable bed and upgraded seat.

“I am delighted to reveal our tribute to the Royal Platinum Jubilee," said chief executive John Sutton. "Suttons have a long history of paying respect to previous Royal Jubilees, most recently in 2012 for the Diamond Jubilee, where we liveried a number of our units with a similar Union Jack effect. I’m proud to see the tradition continue into the modern era with the newest model in our fleet.”

Bob Marshall, who will be driving the Jubilee liveried truck said: “I am very proud to be behind the wheel of the Jubilee cab to represent Suttons on the roads and pay my respects to Her Majesty’s 70 years of service.

“I’ll be making deliveries across the North West, so please keep an eye out and give me a wave if you see me.”
