T480 High flaghsip takes pride of place at Big G Logistics

Essex-based Big G Logistics Ltd has gone bigger and better by adding a high-specification Renault T480 High 6x2 tractor unit as its flagship vehicle. The T480 High was selected for driver appeal, performance, fuel economy and "outstanding" service from the Renault Trucks dealer Norfolk Truck and Van. It joins Big G Logistics' existing fleet of 10 HGVs and five vans.

The truck closely follows a stunning black 23-plate T High and a Master RED Edition van. Powered by Renault's 13-litre engine, the T480 high has been highly specified for driver comfort and appeal with a red interior finish, air suspension, luxury driver's seat, leather steering wheel, 'serenity' bunk, extra convertible bunk with ladder and additional cab lighting. Additionally, the new vehicle has been equipped with Brigade Direct Vision Standard (DVS) compliant safety kit and cameras to aid the driver's indirect vision and protect vulnerable road users, with the cameras all connected to the factory-fitted dashboard screen.

The truck's exterior packs a punch too, with a dazzling array of additional light options including black stainless steel LightFix top bar, low bar and rear perimeter bars, as well as Alcoa Dura-Bright aluminium wheels, black wheel trims, twin roof-mounted air horns, fixed roof and side deflectors. The KUDA sideskirts are also matched to the cab paint colour and have been modified to accommodate the vehicle's radar sensors. To complete the T480 High's good looks, it is finished in Silver Grey Metal Star paint with matching door handles, front wings, radiator grille, bumper corners, external sun visor, windscreen bay, door mirror shells and towing yoke cover.

For director George Denman, a flagship vehicle with real driver appeal was at the heart of the vehicle selection decision: "I've got two brothers working for me who are lorry-mad; they take such good care of their trucks they could wash the paint off! "I like to look after my drivers with a high spec-driving experience and one of the brothers has the 23-plate T High in black, so I told the other brother he could choose what he wanted too! He certainly did, and the new vehicle really is the pride of our fleet!"

The new T480 High is working on The Pallet Network for blue-chip companies. It is supplied with Optivision map-based gear-shift strategy for FUEL ECO that anticipates topography for fuel savings, plus ECO cruise control with Optiroll to further control fuel consumption. "The truck really is an attention-grabber and is great publicity for our business.

But it's not just good looking - we find the reliability of Renault trucks is second to none; everything works!

This, combined with the service from Norfolk Truck and Van, means I won't buy from anyone else," concluded George.
