Alex Fraser Group has taken delivery of the first of three Mack Rigid 10×4 Steel Bodied Tippers.
The trucks have an increased load capacity to carry up to 20 tonnes of material and will maximise productivity and capability in Alex Fraser Group’s recycling team.
This will enable the collection of demolition waste and cartage of Green Roads asphalt by its sister company, Suncoast Asphalt.
Alex Fraser Group Transport and Logistics Coordinator, Chris Fitzgerald was pleased to take delivery of the first truck.
“It’s been a long time coming, and it was great to see our first Mack twinsteer roll in,” he said.
“There’s been a huge buzz as we’ve awaited its arrival, and we can’t wait to see our driver, Dale get behind the wheel.
“These trucks are larger, modern vehicles with a host of advanced features, including additional safety technologies, such as a flashing-talking left turn alert, blind spot detection and side under-run protection system to reduce the risks for the cyclists and pedestrians we share roads with.
“The blind spot detection uses radar technology to constantly monitor the blind spot area of the vehicles.”
Sales Manager, Nicole Bates, thanked the many people involved with the fleet expansion.
“There were a lot of people who helped make this happen,” she said.
“Chris Fitzgerald did a wonderful job getting everything to align.
“We also sought out the expertise of Scott Barber at Hanson Australia, our Transport Manager Mario Tenaglia, Steve Helms at Mack Trucks Australia and Paul Gallagher from Borcat Trailers. Thanks to everyone involved.”
