Leading manufacturer MAN Truck & Bus UK is supplying McCaffrey Transport with a new TGX 26.500 6×2/2 tractor unit with XXL cab as it looks to decrease fleet downtime.
The freight transport company, based in Dungannon, Northern Ireland, has turned to MAN to supply the new vehicle as they were looking for a sturdy and reliable product and MAN ticked both those boxes.
The tractor unit is the company’s first new MAN after previously taking two MAN TopUsed vehicles.
Owen McCaffrey, operations manager, said: “The vehicle will be put to use across the UK and Ireland, but will also have a few European trips per month, anywhere from Sweden to Spain and in between.
“This MAN TGX is earmarked for European work, so the Euro 6C engine ensures increased reliability and decreased downtime.
“We have taken a full Gold Repair and Maintenance contract out. Our local dealer is in close proximity to our yard, which is a bonus for dropping and collecting trucks. They offer great flexibility when booking Periodic Maintenance Inspections, which is vital when such a small window of opportunity is available.
“The appearance of this vehicle is second-to-none and, after a week or so of driving it, our drivers are hooked and love driving MANs.”
MAN sales executive Mark Lennox said: “It has been great to hand over McCaffrey’s first new MAN TGX; I am sure this truck will deliver efficiency and economy to the company.
“The competitive deal, Repair and Maintenance contract and warranty helped seal the deal with the company and we hope to be able to do business with them again in the near future.
“We are confident that the performance of the TGX over the coming years will continue to speak for itself.”
