Bridlington based, Richard Hayton Transport has recently taken delivery of a Dutch style Volvo FH 6x2 pusher axle tractor unit.

A long-standing and loyal Volvo Trucks customer, Richard Hayton Transport’s vehicle preference comes from this business owner’s driving days, when he experienced many different marques, but found his ideal in Volvo trucks.

His latest FH’s specification includes a 500hp D13K engine and Globetrotter XL Cab. The truck’s high specification interior includes full leather trim, an under bunk fridge, microwave oven and colour coded white paintwork complemented by Alcoa Dura-Bright alloy wheels.

The new Volvo FH’s clean-looking and stylish paintwork reflects the company’s high vehicle presentation and maintenance standards, all of which are essential for grain, cereal crop and bulk potato transports in the UK food chain.

We now have four Volvo FH tractor units in our fleet, which haul bulk tipper and curtainside trailers,” notes Richard Hayton. “The service we receive from Crossroads Truck and Bus Ltd.’s dealerpoint in Hull is excellent. Pete Atkinson always keeps in touch and this latest purchase originated from a proactive phone call. Crossroads take time to get to know our business and its operating requirements, which really makes a difference.”

Richard continues, “My son Charlie is part of the business and he’s also inherited a love of Volvo trucks. Despite not having any fuel saving training yet, Charlie already scores up in the mid 90s on our Dynafleet app. As with the rest of our FHs, we have opted for the Volvo Gold Service contract, which gives me complete peace of mind as it guarantees me 100 per cent uptime.
