MAH UK Transport Ltd, a freight services company based in greater London, recently purchased a new Volvo FH16 750 25 Year Special Edition truck. The 4.1-metre tractor unit, which features a Globetrotter XL Cab, pusher axle, and Kelsa LED light bars, joins a fleet of eight 500-horsepower Volvo FH 6x2 tractor units. However, it will stand out from the crowd thanks to its Titan Silver metallic paint job, painted side skirts, and chrome accents. The truck also comes with a five-year Volvo Gold Service Contract, with Volvo Truck and Bus Centre London in Croydon handling maintenance and repairs.
Above & Beyond
Michael Harry, owner of MAH UK Transport Ltd, admits that its new FH16 is “undoubtedly over specified for what we currently do,” which is working with TNT, a freight and logistics service provider with a depot in Croydon. However, he adds that the “truck will have the potential to cater for anything” and open up more capabilities for the company in the future. “We run night shift trunks from Croydon to Birmingham hauling box trailers,” says Harry. “I’m well impressed with the FH16 750’s performance, which is best described as ‘no sweat.’ Even at the maximum 44 tonnes, the engine seems to be barely stretched.”
