Supplied by Mark Reeves, Regional Aftermarket Manager at MC Truck and Bus Ltd, the 4.1m wheelbase FH16 tractor unit comes with a Globetrotter XL Cab, fixed pusher axle and a number of additional Kelsa LED light bars. Finished in a stunning Titan Silver metallic colour, the truck also features painted side skirts, chrome mud wing strips and additional cab paintwork.
“We run night shift trunks from Croydon to Birmingham hauling box trailers. I’m well impressed with the FH16 750’s performance, which is best described as ‘no sweat.’ Even at the maximum 44 tonnes, the engine seems to be barely stretched,” Michael reports.
The FH16 was ordered with a five-year Volvo Gold Service Contract, which will be carried out by Volvo Truck and Bus Centre London’s Croydon dealerpoint. “Volvo’s presence in Croydon is very close to the TNT depot and their aftermarket support levels are good. However, I must also mention Mark Reeves at MC Truck and Bus, as he is the ideal sales person for our business,” Michael adds.
Michael’s fleet of Volvo trucks are always sourced in different cab colours. “I don’t like every vehicle looking the same, our lettering is always applied along the sun visors and that suits me fine.” he explains.
Croydon based, MAH UK Transport Ltd started out in business running vans 19 years ago and Michael bought his first heavy truck in 2012. Since then the business has progressed to operating eight 500hp Volvo FH 6x2 tractor units on dedicated traction supply work for TNT.
Michael concludes, “I never forget how this business started and I am blessed to have a good team of drivers onboard. The FH16 is undoubtedly over specified for what we currently do, but in the future this truck will have the potential to cater for anything. Sometimes I look at the nine Volvo trucks and think this is crazy, as we’ve never advertised for drivers and every recommendation has been by word of mouth.”
