Toll announces $1.5 billion fleet investment

Toll Group has announced it will invest $1.5 billion in its fleet and equipment, with 388 new prime movers and 229 rigid trucks expected to join the fleet.

According to Toll, the investment is part of a six-year global strategic procurement replacement program.

According to Toll, its heavy vehicles are put on a five-year replacement program to ensure the fleet will have the latest safety, innovation, ergonomics and fatigue management systems, as well as improved fuel efficiency and reduced CO2 emissions.

"It is essential that all our vehicles across our fleet are safe and efficient," Toll said in Toll Today.

"Our new vehicles will be monitored with a global telematics system that has 24-hour centralised monitoring of all vehicles. We're also fitting cameras to vehicles that capture events on the road to assist with safe driving analysis.

Features that will be included as standard on all new trucks to join the Toll fleet include Electronic Braking Systems (EBS), Lane Assist Departure Warning, Active Cruise Control, minimum Euro 5 emissions standards and aerodynamic designs, including low rolling resistance tyres.
