The British transport company Gold Fish Transport has found the perfect truck for work in the City of London: the Econic.
Home to millions of people, the city of London is a constantly evolving metropolis. In fact, the UK capital, built on the River Thames, is like a river itself: it never stands still. With so much going on, London needs vehicles like the Econic by Mercedes-Benz to be a master of all kinds of situations, from the challenging terrain of a construction site to navigating traffic alongside hundreds of thousands of other road users during the city's notorious rush hour.
And for Gold Fish Transport, its new Econic 2630 L and 1827 Ls are perfect: the trucks not only move effortlessly through traffic like a fish in water, they also combine off-road capability, vision, ergonomics and comfort to make work and transport a breeze.
Two vehicles, all the features.
The company operates a fleet of 30 trucks from its Brentwood site, which for the first time now includes two Mercedes-Benz vehicles: right from the get-go, the 26-tonner and 18-tonner acquired from the dealer Motus Truck & Van, with financing from Mercedes-Benz Finance, have made a dazzling impression.
To start with, the vehicles are technically outstanding, with their 7.7-litre in-line six-cylinder engine with an output of 300 hp and 272 hp. Then there's the automated 12-speed manual gearbox from Mercedes PowerShift 3. The bodies were manufactured in Wisbech, Cambridgeshire, by ZJB Engineering.
