2016-01 Perennial Freight increases Mercedes-Benz fleet

The recent addition of four new Actros tractor units sees one of Ireland's largest transport companies, Perennial Freight, increase the total number of Mercedes-Benz trucks on its fleet based in Ireland to 57.

Delivered in Perennial’s distinctive cobalt blue livery, the new vehicles will operate from the company's Taghmon base in Wexford, servicing daily routes across Ireland.

The new trucks – all Mercedes-Benz Actros 2545LS, 6x2 tractor units – feature 2.5m StreamSpace cabs with flat floor, driver suspension seats, air conditioning, night heaters, Lane Keeping Assist, Active Brake Assist and come equipped with the latest FleetBoard telematics system.

Having previously implemented FleetBoard across its entire fleet, Perennial Freight uses it primarily as a vehicle management tool, helping to reduce fuel and maintenance costs by monitoring vehicle and driver behaviour.

Established in 1998 and now with offices in Ireland, the UK, France, Belgium, Holland and Poland, Perennial Freight is widely recognised as one of the largest transport companies in Ireland with a fleet of over 750 trailers and a further 130 trucks based across continental Europe operating transport services Europe wide including Turkey and Russia.
