Woodside Distribution Purchases New Volvo Trucks
The pair are the first new Volvos in the Woodside fleet for a number of years. They have been purchased specifically to be use as part of a new three year contract with SCA Hygiene Products, a major largest manufacturers of hygiene and personal care products, including well known brand names such as ‘Velvet’ and ‘Plenty’. Woodsides will be carrying out the warehousing and distribution for SCA throughout all of Ireland.
“Aside from the locality of the Dennison workshop and the convenience of having servicing carried out after our deliveries, the overall quality of the Volvo dealership and the reliability and the quality of the product have really impressed me," said Director Simon Woodside.
Both vehicles have been sold with a five year Repair and Maintenance package, including an agreement that states that servicing will be carried out in the evenings and the vehicles delivered back to Woodsides the same night, ready for operation the following day.
“The detail in the spec’ and Dennison’s knowledge of my operation’s requirements added to the overall package when considering the Volvo product,” Woodside added.
Woodside keeps a substantial fleet and have recently carried out a re-branding exercise with new corporate colors and livery. The company is currently replacing its vehicles, having another pair of Volvo 6x2 FH Globetrotter XLs ready to enter service for the Woodside Haulage arm of the business.
