Slane-based Noone Transport has placed what Mercedes-Benz describes as a ‘very substantial’ double-digit order for new Actros trucks. The company will take delivery of the new units in 2016 – coinciding with what will be the company’s 30th anniversary year.
Influenced in their choice by what Mercedes-Benz commercial vehicles sales manager, Fergus Conheady, said is ‘the excellent fuel efficiency and reliability of the eight existing Actros trucks on their fleet’, the company will take delivery of the new units on a phased basis during the course of next year.
Founded in 1986 in Co. Louth village of Duleek, Noone Transport has grown to become one of Ireland’s leading logistics and distribution companies. Since 2001, the company has operated from its current, more extensive headquarters in Slane, Co. Meath.
In addition to a dedicated national transport service, Noone also operates a Europe-wide service for full and part-load consignments employing ambient and temperature controlled trailers.
Their order comes hot on the heels of recent Fuel Duel Challenge tests conducted by Mercedes-Benz which showed that on Irish roads and in Irish conditions, the Actros uses 10.4% less fuel than its main rivals.
