First Volvo Trucks for over ten years join Clarence Court Eggs national fleet

Date:

<div class="preamble">With an operation that involves collection from some 130 farms nationally and then processing, packing and delivering upwards of one million eggs every day, Wiltshire-based Clarence Court Eggs Ltd., with its main administrative office in Liskeard, Cornwall has taken delivery of eight Volvo FH 6×2 tractor units and twelve Volvo FM 6×2 rear-steer rigids from Stuarts Truck and Bus, Exeter as part of its fleet renewal programme.</div>

These are the first Volvo trucks for more than ten years to join the 23-strong fleet.

The new Volvo FH 6×2 tractor units, with mid-lift axles and Globetrotter cabs have single bunks and fridge/freezers as well as leather upholstery throughout, including the Comfort air-suspended and temperature controlled driver’s seat. Power comes from Volvo’s D13K 460hp engines producing up to 2300Nm of torque at just 900 – 1400rpm.

Coupled to Chereau tri-axle fridge trailers fitted with Dhollandia under-slung tail lifts, each truck is capable of moving up to 281,000 eggs at a time. Thanks to the ‘Eggs Cargo System’ employed by Clarence Court Eggs, which incorporates special plastic pallets, dividers and trays, the eggs are suitably protected from damage in transit.
