The purchase of over 200 of the new Euro-6C 6×2 tractor units in the next two years will provide capacity for recent growth and contribute to the company's strategy to invest in equipment that offers its customers the most effective and flexible solutions.
The strategic procurement process has considered the vehicle specification, fuel efficiency, vehicle reliability, after sales support and whole life cost.
Suttons' fully integrated national tanker network has led to more demand for bulk tanker services and John Sutton, CEO Suttons Group said:
"Suttons Tankers is the UK's largest bulk chemical logistics company and this latest deal continues Suttons commitment to investing in the latest equipment and technology for both existing and new customers.
"Our drivers' safety and wellbeing is of great importance so all of the trucks have undergone an evaluation by a driver trainer, focusing on areas like seat comfort, cab and bed access, noise and cab design.
"Suttons is committed to ensuring our reputation for fleet reliability, legal compliance and customer service are protected and enhanced and our impact on the environment is reduced through new emission technology."
The deal has been agreed with both Volvo and MAN with Volvo receiving the biggest proportion of orders in the first year.
