Largest fleet investment for Star Platforms
By Euan Youdale21 June 2023
UK powered access rental company Star Platforms has made its largest fleet investment to date with the purchase of 15 new delivery trucks.
The purchase includes three Volvo FH models with Andover trailers and 12 Volvo FMX models with Sterling Beavertail bodies.
The 15 trucks, of which eight have already been delivered to Star Platforms depots throughout the UK, have all been modified to the company’s specifications. The new trucks are also delivering improved safety for drivers and other road users.
Richard Miller, managing director of Star Platforms, commented, “The investment in 15 new trucks for our delivery fleet has been significant. We wanted to ensure that we continue to offer our customers the same high standard of customer service, not only with the fleet of powered access but also with our logistics.
“We have been able to modify each of the trucks to our own specifications, which has been a huge benefit to us. All of the modifications will help us deliver, load and unload equipment safely and efficiently. We are looking forward to welcoming the next seven trucks into our fleet over the coming months.”
Star Platforms worked closely with distributors MC Truck and Bus to adapt the trucks to its specifications.
Grant Owen, from Sterling, added, “The relationship between Star Platforms and Sterling has become beneficial to both of us and highly valuable to Sterling’s, continuous improvement program. We look forward to continuing to support Star Platforms’ growth with our bespoke solutions in the future.”
