Yatala-based carrier, Exodas, has received its biggest order of Volvo trucks to date.
Seven new Volvos ranging from an FM11 and a FH13 to FH16 600 XXL Globetrotter prime movers have recently joined the Exodas fleet.
They will be deployed across a range of tasks including local distribution and multi-trailer linehaul.
“Obviously we love the product however it’s the backup and the people that we deal with from Volvo every day that gets us over the line every time,” said Exodas Managing Director Brett Tynan.
“All our Volvo trucks are covered by gold service agreements, which give us a lot more peace of mind when it comes to servicing, backup and costing ,” he said.
Now in its 22nd year, the business began in 2001 with two trucks.
The Exodas fleet now consists of 100 prime movers and 30 rigids and is supporting by a large fleet of trailers from curtainsiders to fridge vans.
“We mainly cover the east coast with depots on the NSW Central Coast, Yatala, Townsville, Bowen, Tully and Mareeba and cart a lot of time sensitive freight,” said Tynan.
“Just knowing that if there’s an issue the driver can get help at the push of a button makes a big difference, it keeps our wheels turning and our business running.”
Trust is vital, according to Greg Sargeant Dealer Principal Volvo Commercial Vehicles Australia, in any partnership.
“It’s great to see Exodas’ continued success and growth,” he said.
“We’re proud to have the Exodas team as part of the Volvo family and we look forward to supporting them for many years to come,” concluded Sargeant.
