Rogers Transport, a haulier and Palletways member based in Hampshire, recently added a new IVECO S-WAY to its 14-truck fleet, which also includes six Stralis tractor units. Rogers says it will put the new S-WAY to work distributing refrigerated goods to supermarkets and hauling loads on curtainside and low-loader trailers; the firm opted for a five-year repair and maintenance plan for the new vehicle.

The IVECO S-WAY is an AS440S57TX/FP powered by a 12.9-litre, 570-horsepower (425-kilowatt) engine. The S-WAY is also available with 8.7- and 11.1-l CURSOR engines, in addition to the 12.9-l, ranging from 330 (246 kW) to 570 HP. The manufacturer has plans to introduce gas-powered engines ranging from 270 to 460 HP (201 to 343 kW), as well.

Exterior & Interior Features

Rogers Transport’s 6x2 S-WAY features a steering mid-lift axle and a full air suspension along with an auxiliary braking system and Alcoa Dura-Bright aluminium wheels. The cab sports an All Black Metallic paint job that includes a body-coloured bumper. Rogers opted for the Full LED Pack, which includes LED headlights, fog and daytime running lights, and more. The headlamps are also accented by black protection grilles, and the truck is equipped with external lockers for added storage.

On the inside, an emphasis on driver comfort is evident, with an independent cab heater, ambient lightings, blinds on the door and bunk, and a parking cooler, which is mounted under the bonnet. IVECO also added thicker, more comfortable mattresses to the bunks. Other features include a refrigerator, a heated windscreen, a leather steering wheel, HI-COMFORT seats, and a 7-inch HI-CONNECT display and infotainment system with satellite navigation, Android Auto, and Apple CarPlay support.

Technologies & Ongoing Support

Another considerable benefit of buying a new IVECO is the Connectivity Box and IVECO ON connected services that come standard with all S-WAYs. This, coupled with the Driver Assistant Pack, allows customers to take advantage of vehicle and driver performance monitoring, over-the-air software updates, predictive maintenance, tyre pressure monitoring, and digital axle load measurement that ensures the load is properly distributed across the axles to remain in compliance with the law. Rogers spec’d the truck with some optional safety features, as well, including an audible turning warning system, a blind-spot monitoring system, and 360-degree cameras.

A Preference For High-Spec Trucks

“We tend to go for higher specifications and the bigger engines, which incentivises the drivers to take better care of them,” says Rogers Transport Managing Director Simon Rogers. “It's possible that we got a bit excited and carried away with the specification, but with it being a new model we wanted a fleet flagship and there are so many great new features such as the connectivity and ability to connect and operate certain functions with a smartphone. Our drivers all want it for the looks, but I thought I'd keep the keys for a little while. However, we're already so impressed with it, an order for a second has been placed.”
