Goggins Transport, one of Ireland’s leading haulage companies, has increased its fleet of Mercedes-Benz trucks by taking delivery of four new Actros tractor units.
The new additions bring to ten, the number of Actros units purchased by the company this year – a decision that Mercedes-Benz commercial vehicles sales manager, Fergus Conheady says ‘further underlines the proven resilience and excellent fuel efficiencies that the Actros provides’.
Delivered in Goggins Transport’s distinctive white and red livery, the four new Actros 2545LS, 2.5m StreamSpace cabs are all equipped with a flat floor, tilting sunroof, luxury bed, refrigerator, Mercedes-Benz PowerShift 3 and Predictive Powertrain Control.
A privately owned, family run freight company founded in 1979, Goggins Transport has two depots in Dublin, one in Galway and one in Liverpool and operates over 80 tractor units and in excess of 150 trailers.
Their latest order follows the 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.
