According to a press release from Renault Trucks UK, “Following its inaugural purchase of Renault Trucks in 2009, leading British food retailer, Iceland, has placed a major order for a further 80 vehicles through Renault Trucks UK. Nine more 18t 270.18 Renault Midlum rigids with Optitronic gearbox and refrigeration bodies went on the road in July, with 71 Renault Premium 4×2 460.18 EEV tractor units with Privilege cab and Optidriver gearbox delivered from October to January 2012. This order takes Renault Trucks’ share of the 300+ fleet to 40 percent.”
“Our current Premium tractor units are performing well and the customer service from Renault Trucks has been excellent, including the Optifuel Infomax fleet management downloads. We chose to add further Renault trucks to the fleet based on a competitive package, the environmental benefits of the Premium’s EEV (enhanced environmentally friendly) engine and a track record of fuel efficiency,”
