RiverRidge Continues to Invest in New Fleet

RiverRidge, Northern Ireland’s leading waste management specialist, has recently taken delivery of seven new Mercedes-Benz Boughton Hook Loaders from MBNI Truck & Van. The deal was facilitated through Mercedes-Benz Financial Services and is part of an ongoing multimillion-pound deal to develop the RiverRidge fleet.

With a fleet of 150 vehicles and trailers across four sites in Derry-Londonderry, Belfast, Coleraine and Portadown, RiverRidge will use the latest arrivals to replace some of the older fleet which was acquired during previous acquisitions.

The seven Mercedes-Benz Arocs 3240k have been fitted with Boughton Hook Loader equipment through Stewart Commercials.

Tony Kirkpatrick, Transport and Logistics Director of RiverRidge comments, “This latest delivery of vehicles from MBNI Truck & Van and Stewart Commercials adds real value to our current fleet, ensuring that our excellent operational ability continues to be sustained.

“Having been awarded the Export and Freight’s Excellence in Compliance award for a second year running shows that we know exactly what is required to ensure RiverRidge maintains a high quality, compliant service.

“These new vehicles offer reduced downtime, improved safety features, improved fuel consumption, reduced engine emissions and importantly increased driver comfort, helping us keep quality at the centre of our business.”

Julian Brown Sales Director at MBNI Truck and Van adds “The Arocs is fitted with our new 320mm tunnel cab, offering one less step into the cab whilst keeping excellent overall visibility. High functionality and lots of new and practical details help make a difficult job much easier.

With the additional benefit of an all-inclusive vehicle maintenance package from MBNI Truck & Van, these RiverRidge vehicles have as little down time as possible.”
