Euro Foods makes significant savings with first Isuzu trucks

The payload advantage achieved by the first ever Isuzu rigids to join the distribution
fleet at Euro Foods Group has meant that the Newport based company needed to
purchase only five new replacement trucks instead of the original plan for six.

Five Isuzu NQR 7.5 tonne rigid trucks, all featuring the NEES 2 Easyshift
transmission, went on the road for Euro Foods last month and are involved in
distribution work previously handled by six vehicles. According to Clive Brock,
Operations Director at Euro Foods, “When we saw the significant actual payload
advantage from the original Isuzu demonstration vehicle supplied by our local dealer,
we were soon convinced that this was the way forward. Now we have five new Isuzu
trucks in our fleet and all are performing well, with the added benefit of achieving
substantial savings from being able to operate one less truck with one less driver.”

Each Isuzu NQR truck has been fitted with the standard Euro Foods specification for
refrigerated bodies, comprising a Lamberet twin compartment body with a Carrier
Transicold Xarios 600 refrigeration system. Inside each vehicle body is a moveable
bulkhead to divide the frozen meat and poultry products from dry goods such as rice,
flour and tinned foods.

Euro Foods Group runs a large distribution fleet ranging from artics to 7.5 tonne
rigids, delivering to its predominantly southern based customers, from two depots in
Newport in South Wales and Barking in Essex. The vehicles are involved in a mix of
motorway and urban distribution throughout the south of England and Wales.

Immediately, Euro Foods found that the Isuzu 7.5t rigids come into their own,
particularly in terms of both driver acceptability and vehicle manoeuvring when
delivering to locations such as town centre restaurants where delivery space is at a

As Clive Brock says, “Since the Isuzu’s went into service the drivers have been
extremely pleased with their performance, both on typical motorway journeys and
most importantly around town where tight parking spaces are an everyday
