SafeSite adds to its delivery fleet

Safety and security specialist SafeSite Facilities has expanded its fleet of vehicles with a custom-built Iveco dropside flat-bed lorry.

With a gross vehicle mass of 7.2 tonnes, the lorry resembles a large 3.5 tonne dropside yet has the ability to carry over three times the payload for a vehicle of its size.

Being a dropside vehicle, it can be loaded and unloaded from either side, or from the back of the lorry, or even by crane from above, providing flexibility on-site.

Paul Kendall, Fleet and Logistics Manager, SafeSite Facilities said:  “We needed a vehicle that could safely carry up to three of our popular, state of the art Minder CCTV Monitoring Towers and their associated equipment and accessories, which this new lorry can do with ease.

“Not only does it give us the flexibility to deliver heavier products to our customers’ sites but it also has the manoeuvrability to access sites that a larger HGV would not be able to get into.

“As a company that puts safety at the heart of its business, we want to ensure our staff are fully protected when they are delivering our products to site. The Iveco vehicle is equipped with an Advanced Driver Assistance System, which includes emergency braking, queue assist, adaptive cruise control as well as other features which reduces the risk of accidents and takes away the stress of driving in heavy traffic.”

In line with the rest of SafeSite Facilities’ fleet the new Iveco lorry has been wrapped in the company’s corporate colours making it instantly recognisable as part of SafeSite’s 18-strong fleet of vehicles, which services the company’s security, delivery and operations divisions.

Further vehicles are expected to be added to the fleet in 2022, including a tractor unit for the distribution of heavy goods to construction sites.

The lorry’s chassis was purchased from Pitter Commercials in Southampton and the rear body was made to a commissioned specification by Solent Bodybuilders.
