Genta Medical, a hazardous waste collection and pathology supplies specialist based in York, recently converted its entire 7.5-tonne distribution fleet over to Isuzu N75.190 rigids. Genta has been an Isuzu customer since 2009 and the newest order consists of six 7.5-tonners with Easyshift automated gearboxes and box bodies with roller shutter doors in the rear and a full-height shutter door on the side. This allows Genta’s drivers, who all have ADR training in handling hazardous liquids, to easily load and unload solvents, which Isuzu says allows Genta to use the same vehicles for delivery and collection services.

Genta plans to keep all of its new N75.190s in operation for at least five years while covering 85,000 kilometres per year During that time, each of the trucks will be covered by five-year repair and maintenance contracts.

Reliability Is Key

“With having operated Isuzus for so long, we know that very little tends to go wrong with them on a daily basis. This reliability is essential for our distribution cycles, bearing in mind the urgent and critical nature of the loads being carried,” says Neil Dobson, transport manager at Genta Medical. “Compared to other makes at this GVW, we find that Isuzu is by far the most reliable, which is why we put them at the centre of our distribution operation.”
