UK - West London lighting and video rental specialist Colour Sound Experiment has expanded its fleet of vehicles with a new artic and trailer – a Volvo FH460 Globetrotter Euro 6 tractor unit, complete with a 45' Schmitz Cargobull low-ride Tri-axle semi-trailer.
This vehicle - chosen for its efficiency and dynamics - is an investment made for the convenience of trucking equipment to tours and festivals across the UK and Europe. It will also offer clients an additional element of cost-effectivity as Colour Sound can offer independent trucking services for large one-offs.
The truck will be especially busy during the upcoming festival season and will help streamline overall production logistics by reducing the off-site pick-ups required.
“All our vehicles have been bought with a view to making our operations as flexible and versatile as possible to suit client needs,” commented Colour Sound’s H (Haydn Cruickshank). “Having the artic substantially enhances the capacity of this service.”
With shows, events and projects involving increased amounts of kit, a larger and more spacious option was required in addition to the existing transport as the new truck joins a 12-tonner that was delivered in November.
Both tractor and trailer are fully air ride enabled and all of this and more ensures that Colour Sound’s kit gets the safest and most comfortable rides to and from site.
Colour Sound already has one full-time Class 1 HGV driver on the transport team, and more will have the opportunity to gain their licences in the coming months.
The new artic and trailer’s first project was transporting lighting and video kit for the Bangface EDM weekender at Southport Holiday Park.
