Family-run operator Edge Transport has welcomed a new Volvo FH 6×2 tractor unit wrapped in a special livery to celebrate the firm’s 90th anniversary.
The business traces its roots back to Alfred Edge, who started as an owner operator in 1933 delivering goods across the local area and later to the British Army during the Second World War. Three generations later, the company now specialises in delivering palletised freight nationwide from its purpose-built 75,000 sq ft headquarters in Deeside, conveniently located next door to its local Volvo dealer.
Jonathan Edge, Chief Executive Officer at Edge Transport, says: “We first turned to Volvo on a trial basis in 2012 taking on three rigids, and we have never looked back.
“Today, our fleet is approximately 90 per cent Volvo-supplied, and the backup service we get from Thomas Hardie Commercials is always faultless. When you add in the competitive pricing, Volvo was the obvious choice for our milestone vehicle.”
Supplied by Andrew Ellis, Deeside Sales at Thomas Hardie Commercials, the company’s new truck features a fresh take on Edge Transport’s usual livery, combining elements from three designs submitted via a competition run amongst local primary and secondary schools.
