Hot on the heels of its recent warehousing growth, Ron Crouch Transport (RCT) has invested in new additions to its fleet.

On the Daimler side, four new Mercedes-Benz Actros trucks takes RCT to 12 current-generation Actros models.

Another four Fuso Fighters will be put to work around town in Melbourne.

"The trucks have certainly delivered the fuel economy improvements over the models they replaced in the fleet and they have all the latest safety equipment, which is paramount for us and our customers," company director Geoff Crouch says of the Actros.

Meanwhile, "the Fuso trucks are perfectly suited to our requirements", Crouch adds.  

"We have a good relationship with the Daimler Trucks dealership network, which gives us an excellent level of support."

RCT also recently took delivery of two new Volvo FH600 XXL cabs, "chosen for their levels of safety, fuel efficiency and ability to meet stringent Euro 6 emission standards", the company says.

The new vehicles complement RCT’s new distribution centre in Brisbane and development of its existing 2,800-square-metre Sydney distribution centre.

"Geoff is a highly valued Daimler family customer and we are especially proud to provide his company with the safest and most efficient trucks available in Australia," Daimler Truck and Bus president and CEO Daniel Whitehead says on the Daimler side of the transaction.

RCT also recently announced the addition of Graham Bailey as its new CEO and Dale Bigham as new national 3PL manager, while and Peter Braneley was promoted to chief operating officer.
