First published on www.AggBusiness.com
Cemex UK hopes to improve its delivery capabilities with investment of £2.9million in 40 new Man vehicles, which will be based at its South Ferriby cement plant in Lincolnshire. The Man 26-440 Euro 5 TGS 6 x 2 tractor units, fitted with Gardner Denver XK 12 blower units and Hyropack will replace 40 existing vehicles that have completed over 750,000kms and are suffering from increased downtime.
The new vehicles join Cemex’s 400-strong fleet in the UK which serve its aggregates and cement business and cover 90million km per year. The company also operates over 500 ready mixed concrete trucks.
Cemex has said that the new Man fleet will offer fuel saving of up to 5% per gallon, reduce CO2 emissions and improve carrying capacity. The new trucks also feature a number of safety improvements including ‘Sidescan’ to reduce the risk to cyclists.
