Efficient Distribution

Increased load capacity means fewer journeys, which in turn:

  • Reduces fuel consumption
  • Benefits the environment in reducing emissions and congestion
  • Makes our tech transport services more competitive for our customers.

Recent additions to our tech transport fleet are invaluable additions to our resources for transporting high value equipment. They include:

  • New Mercedes Atego 1224L 12 tonne trucks, which provide us with 4 tonnes additional load capacity over the 7.5 tonne vehicles in our fleet.
  • A new 18 tonne Atego has also been recently acquired and is being used for heavy equipment shipping and for handling larger consignments.

These vehicles are dual compartment and fitted to Relay’s bespoke specifications. This ensures that moving high value IT, consignments of equipment for offices and laboratories, or any other fragile customer assets we regularly handle, can be carried out with maximum safety and security. We have also had the sleeper cabs changed to crew cabs, allowing for the option of an extra crew member in the vehicles when required for transporting fragile equipment and it's handling at point of end use.

Urban Assignments

Other recent additions to our tech transport fleet include new extra lightweight 7.5 tonne trucks. These are particularly invaluable because:

  • The exceptionally well designed load area of these vans allows for between one and 1.2 tonnes more goods on board than could normally be expected in vehicles of this tonnage.
  • They are ideal for performing collections and deliveries in increasingly urban areas which are becoming increasingly congested.
  • All our new vehicles are Euro 6 compliant, meaning that they fulfil the highest environmental specifications.

Investment for Quality

Our expanding fleet permits us to meet the increasing demand for our tech transport services without any compromise to our high quality standards.

We need to ensure total safety of highly fragile equipment while maintaining rigorous schedules and deadlines and our investment in vehicles fully supports these aims.
