Leading freight specialist, Ron Finemore Transport (RFT) has taken delivery of a Volvo FH 540 — the company’s 300th.
This latest addition to the linehaul fleet, which provides both regional and inter-capital transport services, was delivered by local dealer CMV Truck & Bus Albury/Wodonga
The new unit features Volvo’s Fuel Face technology. It consists of a number of efficiency focused hardware and software features as well as I-See terrain reading cruise control.
As RFT operates across three divisions of Food, Produce & Manufactured Goods and Bulk Liquids, safety is its number one priority.
That makes Volvo Trucks, for whom it has been aliged for several years, a natural fit.
According to CMV Truck & Bus General Manager Miles Crawford the sentiment in the long-lasting relationship retained through its close association with Ron Finemore Transport is incredibly important to his business.
“The total offer, the relationship and the ownership experience is something that lives long after the truck hits the road,” he said.
“Each of the 300 prime movers delivered to Ron Finemore Transport over the years has also supported numerous local suppliers within this area,” said Brent
Fuge, CMV Albury/Wodonga Sales Manager.
“They are a supporter of our local community with a presence on the national stage, and I’m extremely proud of our long standing partnership.”
For Ron Finemore Transport however, local manufacturing and engineering only adds to the Volvo value proposition.
“The fact that these trucks are engineered and built here in Australia provides a level of agility and adaptability for our business,” said Mark Parry, RFT Managing Director.
Efficiency, reliability and driver satisfaction are all key priorities for the RFT fleet.
“With our trucks hauling loads of food and fuel between centres such as Barnawartha, Wagga, ACT, Brisbane, Adelaide, Sydney and Melbourne, we
need safe, reliable and fuel-efficient vehicles,” said Parry.
“The extensive Volvo Group service network across Australia means vehicle downtime is kept to a minimum, allowing us to maintain the high level of service expected by our customers,” he said.
“This prime mover represents a partnership based on trust, support and innovation, and we look forward to this continuing into the future.”
