Menzies Distribution has taken delivery of its first New Generation MAN TGX trucks. The new vehicles, 115 in total, will be operational in Menzies’ nationwide fleet by August 2021. Instantly recognisable in the new Menzies branding, striking Midnight Blue with Process Yellow livery, the company’s network and fleet will total around 4,000 assets and 100 nationwide depot locations. Menzies’ New Generation TGX trucks are all powered by MAN’s latest’s Euro6D D26, 470hp six-cylinder, 12.4 litre engines, which have not only proved to be more fuel efficient than their predecessors, but are also lighter, both areas that proactively impact upon fleet total cost of ownership and vehicle whole life performance.
Building on safety, the new Menzies MAN TGXs feature a host of advanced safety systems: Emergency Brake Assist (EBA), Electronic Stability Programme (ESP), Anti-Slip Regulation (ASR), Lane Guard System (LGS). Included in the standard specification is the Electronic Parking Brake, which applies automatically when the vehicle is parked. All 115 vehicles have been specified with MAN’s new driver attention guard, red seat belts and to ensure third party safety, acoustic reverse alarms.
These latest vehicles offer Menzies drivers a calm and relaxing workplace, and a true home-from-home level of comfort when spending nights away. Enhancing the vehicle specification, Menzies has equipped the GM cabbed vehicles with under bunk fridges, satellite navigation and MAN’s revolutionary SmartSelect, which provides the driver with a touch-free infotainment system. Further features include automatic windscreen wiper activation with built-in rain sensors, and, automatic high-beam low-beam driving-light control.
All of the 115 new vehicles have been prepared and pre-delivery inspected through MAN Truck & Bus Felixstowe.
In addition to the new MAN TGX tractors, Menzies has also purchased 65 new Don Bur and SDC trailers. Both tractors and trailers will work nationally throughout Menzies’ depot locations.
