A haulage firm with a site in Huddersfield has taken delivery of 253 new trucks in the UK and Ireland as part of a major upgrade to its petroleum, bitumen and fuel oils fleets.
Hoyer Petrolog UK’s new vehicles include 185 MANs and 68 Scanias on a mixture of three, five and seven year leases. The fleet has been enhanced further with the purchase of 111 petroleum trailers and 26 new bitumen trailers as part of an £8m investment programme.
Operations director Allan Davison said the acquisition of the new vehicles underpins Hoyer’s position as the market leader in petroleum distribution and as a significant player in the bitumen market.
He said: “This investment and growth against the backdrop of an apparently declining market demonstrates that our business strategy is working.
“Our petroleum business continues to grow, particularly with customers interested in a full service logistics solution.”
“Our customers are reaping the rewards of the efficient, cost effective solution we can offer.”
