Trucks offer extra payload

Isuzu Forwards 7

With a payload advantage of up to 700kg in comparison with other vehicles in its refrigerated fleet, five Isuzu Forwards 7.5 tonners have gone into service at Skelmersdale-based food service company Hannah Foods’ national distribution operations.

Director Gary Hannah said: “Payload is absolutely critical to our daily operation, and to get almost 700kg extra load per truck makes us far more efficient in our daily delivery schedules.

“The lower cab position on the Isuzus makes it easier for our drivers to get in and out. Each truck handles in excess of 20 delivery drops a day so this is a significant advantage when it comes to loading and unloading.”

Supplied by dealer Ditchburn Truck Services in Liverpool, all five Forward N75.190 rigids were also specified with Isuzu’s Easyshift automated transmission.

The trucks were supplied with multi-compartment Solomon refrigerated bodies with movable bulkheads that allow flexibility of load between the chilled and frozen compartments.

As part of the vehicle specification, each 7.5-tonne Isuzu has been fitted with the TranScan 2 data logging system from Seven Telematics. Hannah said: “We are operating the Isuzus on a range of school contracts where delivery temperature points have to be recorded for all deliveries.”
