Fleet Specification

Iveco Stralis E6 - Awesome Beasties!

We invest in the best vehicles and equipment to keep your load on the move. To get your load from collection to destination we currently use Iveco Stralis trucks. Thanks to our annual replacement policy the average age of our fleet is 3 years old. All of our vehicles comply with the London Low Emmission Zone Regulations (LEZ) and are 100% Euro 6 and run using Adblue.

Sittingbourne Logistics Park

A Thoroughbred Fleet

We currently operate in excess of 90 artic vehicles and 200 + trailers including walking floor trailers. Our larger curtain sided trailers allow for customers goods to be double stacked inside a trailer providing a more cost effective solution, in turn allowing for more goods to be transported.

The majority of our vehicles are less than three years old and regular maintenance programmes ensure we keep our fleet in peak condition, minimising breakdowns and reducing repair downtime. Very few hauliers have their own workshop, but we do. Our trailers are serviced by our team of workshop fitters every eight weeks and our tractor units every five weeks. Keeping our fleet fit for the road means we can guarantee you reliable services at a competitive price.

  • Traditional family owned haulage company with a large, modern fuel-efficient fleet.
  • Modern vehicles equipped with systems to help reduce COemissions.
  • Our vehicles and trailers are serviced on a regular basis by our team of skilled mechanics.
  • Expert in-house maintenance keeps our fleet ready for the road.

Sustainable Transport

We work to minimise environmental impact by managing control of emissions, monitoring fuel economy and maintaining our fleet at optimum efficiency. Our advanced routing technology and practice of moving consignments overnight or early in the morning whenever possible, helps our vehicles avoid congestion and reduce fuel consumption. To achieve and demonstrate sound environmental practice we follow the ISO14001 standard.

To achieve and demonstrate sound environmental practice

  • Innovative routing technology reduces fuel consumption.
  • Harmful emissions carefully controlled by advanced technology.
  • Out-of-hours vehicle movements cut congestion.
  • Green workplace policies in place.

Moving Forward With Walking Floor Trailers

The importance we place on protecting the environment is demonstrated by our willingness to embrace the latest technology for transporting ‘green’ materials, as well as our commitment to in-house training, and the working practices outlined in our environmental policy. Biomass - agricultural waste, wood, straw, manure and so on – is a valuable renewable energy source. But how to transport it to power stations? Walking floor trailers are the solution, and at Nicholls, we recognise the potential this innovative technology offers us and our customers.

Fully Equipped

Our vehicles have a whole host of innovative features, putting Nicholls Transport above the rest. Automatic vehicles with OptiDrive technology help reduce engine wear and tear and also make them easier and more comfortable to drive. As part of our environmental policy all new vehicles have AdBlue fuelled SCR systems to reduce emissions. Having the ability to download vehicle data allows us to analyse fuel consumption, mileage, driver performance and therefore continually improve service levels. In addition all of our vehicles are tracked and each lorry cab has a phone installed in it enabling us to keep in contact with our drivers.
