Star Platforms invests in 15 new trucks.

Star Platforms, the UK-powered access company, has made its “biggest fleet investment to date” with the purchase of 15 new trucks from MC Truck and Bus Company. The purchase includes three Volvo FH models with Andover trailers and 12 Volvo FMX models with Sterling Beavertail bodies.

The 15 trucks, of which eight have already been delivered to Star Platforms depots throughout the UK, have all been modified to the company’s specifications. The feedback from drivers about the new trucks has been excellent, and Star Platforms is certain it will improve safety for drivers and other road users.

Richard Miller, Managing Director of Star Platforms, commented: “The investment in 15 new trucks for our delivery fleet has been significant. We wanted to ensure that we continue to offer our customers the same high standard of customer service, not only with the fleet of powered access but also with our logistics.

“We have been able to modify each of the trucks to our own specifications, which has been a huge benefit to us. All of the modifications will help us deliver, load and unload equipment safely and efficiently. We are looking forward to welcoming the next seven trucks into our fleet over the coming months.”

Grant Owen from Sterling commented: “Sterling has been a proud supplier of beavertail truck bodies to Star Platforms for more than 7 years. Star Platforms upholds the highest safety specifications for their delivery fleet, which has created a fantastic working relationship with us, collaborating to create bespoke solutions for the trucks. The relationship between Star Platforms and Sterling has become beneficial to both of us and highly valuable to Sterling’s, continuous improvement program. We look forward to continuing to support Star Platforms’ growth with our bespoke solutions in the future.”
