H Parkinson Haulage of Walton-le-Dale near Preston specified SAF-Holland
INTRADRUM axle and suspension systems for their new fleet of trailers
after having thoroughly reviewed all the market options.
HPH director Steve Sugden explained; ‘we recently secured a high-value
contract with a national brewery which significantly influenced our
decision to go with SAF as part of the overall trailer specification.
Achieving maximum payload is a priority for us and so with SAF being
both light and yet offering excellent operational stability put it ahead
of the competition. We have our own vehicle servicing workshops here at
HPH and so the simplicity of SAF axle maintenance together with their
market-leading warranties helps reduce whole-life costs.’
Steve had this to say about IMS Limited, sole distributor of SAF-Holland
in the UK; ‘efficient product maintenance and servicing are crucial to
us, as like all operators, we’re keen to minimise vehicle downtime, so
the enhanced training and support provided by IMS Limited’s field team
was another big factor in our decision-making process’.
Steve Sugden is widely experienced within the commercial vehicle and
haulage industry and is a long-term SAF-Holland endorsee.
