BP Gas Volvo Trucks Get I-Sync and Dynafleet

In what is a premiere for Volvo in the BP Gas fleet, six new Volvo FL 4x2 rigid tankers are to be fitted with Dynafleet and the I-Sync automated gearbox, the Swedish manufacturer announced today. According to BP Gas Logistics Support Engineer Willie Anderson, the reasons behind this decision are improving fuel economy and optimizing driver safety.

The new FL trucks, supplied by Volvo Truck and Bus Centre North & Scotland from its Glasgow West dealership at Cardonald, take the number of Volvos in the fleet to 60 out of a total of 80 vehicles.

“All the FL’s have been placed on Volvo five-year repair and maintenance contracts with the emphasis on maximizing vehicle utilization with inspections and scheduled work carried out overnight or at the end of shifts,”
a company statement reads.

Taken separately, I-Sync is specified to help drivers concentrate on safe driving, being equally advantageous on crowded city streets as it is on deliveries to the Highlands.

On the other hand, Dynafleet is being used to improve fuel consumption as well as vehicle and load security through tracking and journey trails. It is also linked to the digital tachograph to monitor driver’s hours and availability.

“We’ve operated Volvo’s since 1984,”
Anderson said in a release. “Of all the manufacturers we approached in the purchasing round, they were the hungriest for the business and keenest to meet all our requirements. Not only have we had good operating experience of the products and the service support from their dealer network, Volvo also shares BP Gas’s core values of safety, quality and care for the environment.”
