Forty five Isuzu Forward 7.5-tonners replace 100 vans

Isuzu Truck Forward 7.5tA total of 45 new Isuzu Forward 7.5 tonne rigids have gone into service with national retailer Wren Kitchens as it changes its distribution model. They will be covering the distribution routes — deliveries from its regional hubs to city centre customers — previously handled by the company’s 100 Renault Master vans.

The newcomers are all Forward N75.150 (E) rigid chassis, each fitted with a purpose-designed demountable body. All the new trucks have been supplied by Isuzu Truck’s Humberside dealer Thompson Commercials and are each one is anticipated to cover at in excess of 90,000 miles per annum over a five-year working life.

“We undertook considerable due diligence to identify that the payload afforded us by switching to the bigger GVW Isuzus would enable us to operate fewer vehicles in total, while also increasing our efficiency in distribution through the increased payload achieved,” said Lee Holmes, head of transport, Wren Kitchens. “At the same time, the Isuzu’s compact footprint enables them to easily deliver to all the same places as the vans.

“By switching to Isuzu 7.5t rigids, we have been able to achieve the minimum payload of 2.8 tonnes that makes this operation viable, as we need to carry at least two kitchens and two remedials within each Isuzu for this new distribution operation to be successful.”
