If you are looking for a well-priced used tractor unit then you must consider a used Iveco tractor unit. The brand has not been much loved in the UK for their heavyweight trucks, but this is not the case in continental Europe.
This means that prices in the UK can be relatively low for what is a well designed and manufactured truck.
The bulk of the Iveco tractor units you will find for sale here are the Stralis model range. There may be one or two older Eurostar models, but these are now considered a vintage truck.
Expect to see increasing numbers of the Stralis replacement – the S-Way tractor units. With new deliveries of the S-Way tractor units only starting in 2021 we will not see any great numbers for sale in the used market until 2025 and beyond.
If you have a large parade in an urban environment, you have to try and make the trucks as low-emitting as possible. That’s what happened with the Jubilee using Iveco’s bio-methane powered S-Way. Iveco supported the Platinum Jubilee Pageant’s sustainability initiatives in London, in association with specialist event haulier, KB Event. Iveco supplied three of its Iveco S-WAY tractor units, to pull three of the Pageant’s floats, of which two vehicles were CNG-powered (Compressed Natural Gas), which provided a sustainable approach to the event. The two bio-methane fuelled Iveco S-WAYs (AS440S46TP natural gas) pulled the ‘70s Northern Soul Trailer and…>
An early adopter of the new IVECO S-WAY from launch in late 2020, Williams Transport has now taken delivery of its fifth, a special creation to mark its golden anniversary. With 50 trucks on the fleet, almost 20% of which hail from the Italian brand, the IVECO S-WAY is laying claim with plans for more moving forward. This latest IVECO S-WAY joins as a celebratory flagship, with the family-owned company, founded in 1971 celebrating success with 50 years in the haulage business. While the majority of its fleet features a two-tone ivory and green livery, this vehicle harks back to…>
Iveco is continuing to invest in their gas power technology by expanding its available fuel tank options on its IVECO S-WAY CNG 4x2 tractors, increasing the total fuel capacity to 1,052-litres, up by 132L. The CNG fuel tanks consist of four cylinders arranged in to a ‘pack’, with one pack sitting on either side of the truck’s chassis. Maximising available space, half of the total cylinders on each side remain at 115L, while the balance has been increased to 148L. This additional tank size enables 160kg of compressed natural gas to be squeezed into the tanks, which equates to an…>
Amazon has already taken delivery of the first batch of 216 IVECO S-WAY CNG (Compressed Natural Gas) tractors to be operated by its partners in Europe and another 848 units have been ordered with deliveries to be started in the middle of 2022 (for a total order of 1,064 trucks). Selling 1,000 trucks to any business is a good day in the office by any measure. Selling this number of alternatively-fuelled trucks is even bigger news. Could this be the tipping point when gas trucks become an acceptable norm for long distance heavy goods transport on the road? Sure, the…>
Logistics is no easy business. Forget the current driver shortage – the industry has been battling with this issue for many years already. Think about the pace of change as far as environmental issues are concerned. Many logistics companies are investing in alternative propulsion technology as an opportunity and others because their customers are demanding it. As fully electric long-distance trucks are not ready yet, the only greener alternative to diesel for an operation that triple shifts their trucks is to look at fuelling the with Biomethane. This is what JSE-listed Imperial Logistics (Imperial) has managed in adding 18 new…>
