Fuel economy ‘unlimited’ driver comfort secures new Volvo order at Global Delivery Solutions

Global Delivery Solutions has added two new high-spec Volvo FH with I-Save Unlimited Edition trucks to its growing fleet. The general haulage firm, based in Wellingborough, placed the order after trialling a demonstrator which highlighted the performance of Volvo’s most fuel-efficient tractor unit in the 44-tonne market. “We’ve been running Volvo trucks ever since we’ve been going and we’ve always been very happy with the product,” says Satpal Bains, one of the owners of the family-run business. “The FH with I- Save is talked about as one of the best trucks on the market when it comes to fuel economy, and we were certainly impressed with the results we saw from the demonstrator.

“The support we get from our local dealer has always been really good so, in the end, it was quite a straightforward decision to go with Volvo for this order.” Supplied by Oliver Wright, Transport Solutions Executive at Volvo Truck and Bus Centre South & East, the two 6×2 Unlimited Edition trucks are finished in a striking metallic ‘ice-white’ paint with blue decals and feature a luxurious Globetrotter XL cab interior. Volvo Trucks has made a GBP1,000 donation to “NHS Charities Together” for every FH Unlimited Edition vehicle sold in the UK, raising GBP70,000 to support the collective of NHS charities.

The range benefits from an enhanced exterior finish, chrome detailing, Alcoa Dura Bright alloy wheels and Conger Black premium chassis paint.
