Blackpool based haulier and Palletforce member E Vallance Transport Services has had one of his high roof curtainsiders retrofitted with sloping front end and its now turning in a fuel consumption improvement close to 11%.
The conversion was carried out at Montracon’s repair and refurb centre at Wilberfoss (nr York) which has seen a leap in enquiries from operators urgently looking to streamline both their trailers and their fuel bills in the face of escalating prices at the pump.
E Vallance Transport Services managing director Steve Vallance says, he’d love the saving to be a little higher! But he is already lopping around £4500.00 a year from the vehicle’s fuel bill based at today’s bunkered prices and with prices threatening to go even higher, who knows what this saving might clock up to in the future.
