New Redland trucks hit the road

Redland says it has upgraded its logistics capacity with three new trucks from its transport partner, Wincanton. Between them, the three trucks will reportedly deliver roof tiles to approximately 6,000 customers during their operational lifetime, clocking up a million miles in total.

Equipped with Hiab cranes, they reportedly have additional safety features including lane departure warning and emergency brake assist. To help with manoeuvring in yards, they feature a five-camera CCTV system and come with a low entry cab to minimise the risk of falling from height for the driver.

And just to make sure Redland can keep tabs on its cargoes and ensure deliveries are on time, each truck has on-board telematics linked to a GPS tracking system.
