UD Trucks automatics

Queensland food distributor City Country Distribution has switched to automatic transmissions in its delivery trucks in a bid to increase efficiency, improve driver comfort and lower costs.

City Country has an eight truck fleet, with the company intending to move totally to automatics over the next few years.

Operations director for the company, John Cunningham, said the UD Automatics make it a lot easier and safer for drivers in city traffic around Ipswich, as well as ensuring they can concentrate on the task at hand on country roads.

“We did a lot of analysis and realised the MK6 UD Automatic was a better proposition than those being offered by opposition brands, and we had a lot of good experiences with UD in the past,” John Cunningham said.

“We purchased three new MK6 Automatics, and we intend to buy more now that they are proving themselves on the road.”

The company is the Pauls Dairy Foods distributor for the area from Ipswich to Tenterfield in Northern NSW, out to Gatton in the west and Logan in the East.
