Isuzu delivers for A1 Distribution

South Australian business A1 Distribution attributes some of its success to its reliable fleet of Isuzus. A new Isuzu FVD 1000 4×2 12 pallet curtainsider is the latest vehicle to be added to the fleet.

Based in Mount Gambier, the family owned company executes over 1000 small parcel and general palletised freight deliveries each day using its fleet of 20 trucks. The company demands vehicles that can withstand a great deal of wear and tear.

It has been delivering goods to the Limestone Coast of south-east Australia as well as the Green Triangle area of western Victoria since 1999.

“The Isuzu truck fleet has helped us achieve our aim of being a key player in the distribution industry within our serviced area,” said A1 Distribution Manager, Neil Boase.

“In addition, reliability is the backbone of our business and that is exactly what Isuzu has provided to our fleet.”

The new Isuzu FVD 1000 4×2 12 pallet curtainsider fitted with a two tonne alloy tailgate loader will be used for delivering general freight, produce, packaged furniture and white goods.

The Isuzu FVD 1000’s SiTEC Series III powerplant provides 221 kW of power along with 981 Nm of torque and is coupled to a ZF 9-speed transmission. 

Other driveline features include a Meritor rear axle and Hendrickson airbag rear suspension.

The curtainsider body was custom built by Elite Truck Bodies in Melbourne and provides an ideal advertising space for the company to showcase imagery of its modern vehicle fleet and distribution centre.
