Four new Australian-made Euro6 IVECO X-Way AT 6×4 prime movers join SRT’s fleet, operating out of its Laverton North depot.
The four new trucks are engaged in single trailer refrigerated work throughout metropolitan Melbourne.
According to SRT Logistics’ Director, Brent Miller, the trucks operate from 5:00am to 6:00pm, seven days per week, with the drivers often coupling and uncoupling trailers up to 15 times per day.
As one of the sons of the company’s founder, Jim Miller, Brent and his brother Robert purchased SRT in 2012, but both originally started as drivers and it’s this time behind the wheel that helped shape some of the company’s criteria in purchasing the new X-Ways.
“The X-Way has the connections for the airlines and cab tilt on the driver’s side of the cabin. This means drivers can get out of the cabin and more efficiently connect or disconnect the trailer; they don’t even have to step up onto the catwalk, it can all be done at ground level,” Brent Miller said ( son of company founder , Jim Miller).
SRT Logistics is no stranger to the IVECO brand having previously used Eurocargos as part of its medium duty fleet and more recently, four 6×2 Stralis ATi rigids.
Among the X-Way’s safety equipment is Adaptive Cruise Control, ABS brakes with Advanced Emergency Braking System, Electronic Stability Program, Anti-Slip Regulator, Hill Holder and Lane Departure Warning System, ensuring the trucks are brimming with active safety features.
Delivered in April this year, Brent has assigned each of the new trucks to a specific driver, all of whom are looking after their vehicles with pride, while servicing of the new trucks is being carried out by Adtrans Truck Centre.
