Furniture logistics specialist, Andrew Porter Limited, has announced further investment into its delivery fleet with the rollout of two new eco-friendly vehicles.

The six-figure investment has allowed the firm to add a new Mercedes Actros tractor unit for its retail delivery trailers, as well as a Mercedes Axor rigid wagon for its home delivery fleet.

Tim Aspey, managing director, commented: “These new vehicles offer improved driver comfort, road efficiency and safety and the investment is part of our ongoing commitment to the highest levels of service and environmental care.

“Both vehicles have the aerodynamic sloped roof and highly efficient engines as well as other eco-friendly features, and already we are seeing significant fuel efficiency with the Actros.  With the thousands of deliveries we fulfil every week, this adds up to a significant environmental benefit.”

Lancashire-based Andrew Porter Limited operates a fleet of 40 logistics vehicles across its delivery service within the UK & Ireland, and plans to continue to update its fleet throughout the year.
