GMK Logistics reports excellent fuel economy figures…
Cost of life is, as we know, the biggest issue that truck operators big and small have to contend with.
Over thousands of kilometres of work a fuel saving can literally mean the difference between a profit and a loss.
Part of the Perth-based CTI Logistics, GMK Logistics specialises in transporting flooring across Australia and has depots in Brisbane, Newcastle, Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth.
The new addition to the fleet, the Actros, is powered by a 13 litre/510hp engine, mated to a fully automated 12-speed transmission.
Replacing an American-style unit and being used for local duties in Sydney and Newcastle in B-Double configuration, Commercial Manager, Glenn Brown, says the Mercedes-Benz is proving extremely efficient.
“We are seeing a 25% improvement in fuel economy,”
“So, we are very happy with our decision to go with the Mercedes-Benz.”
