Followmont Transport deploys another set of UD Quons

Followmont Transport

Followmont Transport has taken delivery of an additional two UD Quons this week, following the new UD Croners which arrived just last month.

The new Quons will complete local pickup and delivery runs for Followmont Transport’s customers in regional Queensland.

With this delivery, there are now 165 UD trucks currently in operation across Followmont Transport’s business.

Followmont Transport Managing Director, Mark Tobin, told Prime Mover the regular UD deliveries have been vital to the fleet’s operations.

“We love UDs and will always have them as a major part of our fleet,” he said.

“They are such an asset to our business and consistently perform throughout our network.

“The UD brand has been a part of Followmont’s growth, and without the durability of this product, we wouldn’t be able to provide the service we do for our customers.”

The latest iteration of the UD Quon range is loaded with design and feature enhancements for the long-term safety of drivers, pedestrians, and road users.

With enhanced fuel efficiency, greater road safety systems, increased uptime and superior driver comfort, Tobin said the Quon prioritises operators and their safety first.

“That reliability and peace of mind means we can get on with our day job, knowing that we are keeping our commitment to our customers and providing safe and comfortable fleet for our drivers,” he said.

“The enhanced safety features in the latest model just take the Quon to the next level.

“It provides greater road visibility through Blind Spot Information System and Lane Change Support plus incorporates UD’s technologies like smart break systems, traction aid and warning and recognition systems, just to name a few.”

Tobin said the trucks prove themselves time and time again, and continue to impress Followmont Transport with each range.

“It’s not just about the quality product though, the support we receive from our partners at UD Trucks and Volvo Commercial Vehicles is invaluable,” he said.

“They have grown with us and form part of our DNA.”

In 2023 Followmont has received 19 UD trucks, three of which are Quons and 16 Croners.
