A new Volvo FH rigid is called to the bar by brewing suppliers, Murphy and Son Limited

Nottingham-based, Murphy and Son Limited has put a new Volvo FH into operation. The Globetrotter Cab 6x2 rigid will be used for delivery of brewing supplies across East Anglia and South East England and was supplied by Hartshorne Motor Services Ltd.


Nottingham-based, Murphy and Son Limited’s new Volvo FH will be used for delivery of brewing supplies all around the UK.

The new FH is powered by Volvo’s D13K engine producing 420hp, with the 26-tonne chassis fitted with Lawrence David curtainside bodywork and conforms to full ADR specifications. Inside the roomy Globetrotter Cab, the driver benefits from a microwave oven, an under-bunk fridge / freezer and leather seats. Equipped with front steel and rear air suspension, the FH is the first Volvo truck to enter Murphy and Son Limited’s heavy truck fleet.

Murphy and Son Limited also opted for a top choice, five-year Volvo Gold Service Contract package, which guarantees 100 per cent uptime and offers complete peace of mind to the operator.

The new Volvo FH will be used exclusively on an own account basis, delivering brewing supplies and fetching in bulk supplies to our premises,” reports Jon Wood, Transport Manager at Murphy and Son Limited. 

To maximise safety in operation, Murphy and Son also specified an aftermarket vehicle perimeter camera system.

It’s early days yet, but after a few weeks in service, the Volvo FH is doing well. The driver thinks it’s a really good vehicle and he reports favourably on performance standards, as we frequently use the vehicle up to its 26-tonne maximum permitted weight,” Jon explains.
