Welcome to the revamp of our website…
2018 is the 50th Anniversary of the founding of our Company, and besides adding to the livery of trucks registered 2018 onwards with our 50th Oak Leaves Logo, we will be adding special trucks throughout the year to mark the occasion.
These trucks are:
- MAN XXL 26.440 in Black and Gold Livery – special registration no. 50 MGL !!!
- DAF XF 530 Super Space Limited Edition in Metallic Rouge Flamme and Silver Livery – cherished registration no. GB18 MGL – one of only 25 made for the UK to mark DAF’s 90th year
- MAN XXL 26.640 Performance Line in Ruby Red and Chrome Livery – arriving in September
- 2 x MAN XXL 26.640 Performance Line in Graphite Grey and Red Livery – arriving in September
- 2 x DAF 530 Super Space Limited Edition, one in Jamaica Blue, one in Metallic Black, also part of the 25 specials made for the UK.
- Also during this time, additional fleet replacements will be added, starting with 5 x DAF XF 530 Super Space added in March, plus various MAN XXL 500’s, most recently GN18 OVO in July
We are proud to run one of the most modern fleets in the UK, now over 95% Euro 6 and Euro 6C.
All trucks entering the fleet are now fitted with forward and side facing CCTV cameras, after consultation with our insurers Allianz.
Camera systems are supplied by Vision Unique Equipment of Manchester.
We are pleased to announce that Myers Transport has gained the ‘FORS Bronze’ award to enable us to deliver to construction sites which demand high safety standards from their suppliers. All trucks are suitably equipped and bear ‘FORS’ decals.
Recent vehicles added to Group Fleet are:
JUNE 16 – 5 x New DAF XF Superspace 460 bhp tractors – GN16 LLF, GN16 LLG, GN16 LLJ, GN16 LLK, GN16 LNH
JULY 16 – 1 x MAN TGX 480 bhp tractor – EJ13 NPE (Bought used, only 100K kms on the clock!)
SEPTEMBER 16 – 3 x New DAF Superspace 460 bhp tractors – GN66 ZCX, GN66 ZCY, GN66 ZCZ
OCTOBER 16 – 2 x MAN TGX 480 bhp tractors EJ13 NPV (Bought used only 120K kms on the clock!) and OY16 UHX (Ex demonstrator, only 20K kms on the clock)
All in our distinctive ‘Myers Group’ livery
The fleet is looking good!
October 2015 saw GN65 NDU and GN65 NDV join the fleet, and on 1st March 2016, GN16 FNH, GN16 FNJ and GN16 FNK joined them.
All are in our distinctive Myers livery, except FNJ and FNK which are in the stunning livery of our client, Mammoet Ferry Transport
January 2016 saw five ex demo MAN TGX XXL Euro 6 tractors join our fleet – with delivery mileage only.
These trucks are MW15 VPK (560 HP), MW15 VPZ (440 HP), MW15 VRK, MW15 VRL and MW15 VRM, the last three being 480 HP)
Look out for them on the road!
October will see the start of more new DAF’s being delivered to us.
A total of 16 DAF XF 460’s with Superspace cabs and full specification have been ordered from Channel Commercials PLC of Ashford, Kent – some as replacements and some as additions to the fleet.
This firmly proves our reliance on the marque, although we will continue to purchase other makes in order to be fully conversant with what is on offer in the truck marketplace!
To add vehicles to our fleet quickly to cope with the upsurge in business, we were fortunate to locate and purchase 3 MAN TGX XLX 26.440 tractors in as new condition – all with less than 190000 kms on the clock.
DA11 NHP, DA11 NKX and DE11 XWB went into service with us during the last week all in our usual ‘Myers’ livery.
These vehicles were supplied under MAN’s TopUsed scheme and are guaranteed for two years.
Our fleet is now totally satellite tracked!
Followed various trials, we have recently installed trackers throughout the fleet to pinpoint truck positions when required by our clients – the system also allows us to follow the journeys covered by our vehicles and to collate information on fuel consumption, driving patterns etc.
Our latest additions to the fleet, GN65 PPV and GN65 PPX, are Mercedes New Actros Gigaspaces – this time rated at 510 bhp!
One is in our ‘Myers’ livery and the other rather stunningly (in our humble opinion) emblazoned in the livery of our esteemed client GB Logistics PLC.
There are now five Mercedes New Actros tractors in the fleet.
