Iveco Stralis Hi-Way in the Brian Yeardley Continental fleet for Europe
A top spec Hi-Way Iveco Stralis has been added to Brian Yardley Continental for its fleet and the truck is aptly fine-tuned for long distance hauling for European mainland operations. This low ride height tractor with 500bhp tractor unit is being considered over other competitors before the company finalizes the orders for its 2015 fleet.Photo 1:
The truck has been supplied by Northern East Truck & Van, which is Hull-based and the Iveco Stralis Hi-Way is offered with a 5 year repair and maintenance contract of Iveco Elements which is covered for the whole of Europe. The trucks would be put in the task of carrying outbound chemicals and in bound white goods for Italy and Spain predominantly.
Brian Yardley Continental MD Kevin Hopper said that the Northern East Truck & Van (NETV) came with the proposal of trying the Stralis and the company went for it. According to him the specs of the truck appeared pretty impressive on paper and the truck looked even better in his company colors with the right price tag. It also had a competitive R&M package. Since the truck is already there now they are waiting to see its performance.Photo 2: Iveco Stralis Hi-Way in the Brian Yeardley Continental fleet for Europe
