Woodland Group and Milbank Concrete Products launch newly branded fleet

Having agreed a 5-year contract extension that will see them reach 15 years of working together, Woodland Group and Milbank Concrete Products are excited to have released their newly branded fleet onto UK roads.

Having established itself as a specialist in delivering 360 degree logistics solutions to the construction industry, Woodland Group provides a dedicated Hiab fleet and supply of tractor units to Milbank Concrete Products, the UK's leading manufacturer of concrete products. For the last 10 years, Woodland has successfully managed the substantial health & safety risks related to the delivery of precast concrete products, the time-sensitive nature of on-site crane offloading at delivery points with every safety precaution taken by the Woodland drivers to eliminate risks to all supply chain stakeholders and the wider community, meeting Milbank’s strong focus on delivering exceptional customer service.

The newly launched Mercedes truck fleet sports a fresh co-branded design, a service Woodland offers to key clients in forging true long-term partnerships and facilitating increased brand awareness. The trucks feature every driver aid for comfort and safety, sat nav, fridge/freezer, microwave oven, a solar powered in cab cooling unit that avoids running the vehicle to maintain the air con unit. MirrorCam is the brand new exclusive alternative to outside mirrors. The new Actros is the first truck in the world to offer this system, which harnesses digital cameras and displays to provide an all-round view of the truck’s surroundings, allowing the driver to eliminate blind spots and see when another vehicle, motorcyclist, cyclist or pedestrian is heading their way.

 The truck also boasts the newest edition of Active Brake Assist – ABA 5, an innovative system which helps to prevent potential front or rear-end collisions by using radar and camera technology to detect and respond to a moving pedestrian.

Active Drive Assist gives the driver access to semi-automated driving at all speeds for the first time in a series production truck and Lane Keeping Assist and Lane Departure Protection (LDP) help drivers stay in the correct lane when driving, with LDP additionally steering the truck back in to position if it starts to drift.

This latest fleet investment marks Woodland’s dedication to delivering excellence, sustainable client growth, and safe environments for the entire ecosystem and wider communities.
