Investment in our fleet…
We are looking forward to receiving twenty new Mercedes Benz Actros long distance trucks in March 2017. The Actros sets new standards in safety, fuel economy and emissions. Its many productivity innovations make these vehicles even more cost effective to run.
The excellent overall economy of the Actros is the result of a number different factors, for example the Euro V1 engine offers 5% lower fuel consumption and the Predictive Powertrain Control predicts the terrain ahead and automatically selects the most efficient gear saving fuel. The efficient engine also delivers considerably lower CO2 emissions was well as reduced particulates and Nitrogen Oxide emissions.
In addition the telematics systems that Bunzl Retail Supplies installs into its fleet to ensure that our vehicles are driven to the highest standards of safely and professionalism, the Actros employs many safety and assistance systems to reduce the risks and ease the burden on the driver. Alongside the Electronic Braking System with ABS, ASR, Brake Assist, hill holder and Active Brake Assist, the Stability Control Assist system, Lane Keeping Assist and Attention Assist also contribute to the high level of safety.
