Montracon has developed a range of fuel saving options that can trim consumption by up to 10% or more – depending on operating conditions and the level of options chosen.
Clearly, slicing 10% plus off the fuel bill is a big attraction for any truck operator, the more so if it runs a multi-vehicle fleet. In very round terms, at today’s prices, based on a typical vehicle covering 80,000miles a year, a 10% saving on fuel represents a £6500* saving on fuel cost per vehicle per year. The financial inducements, therefore, to operating an FST are at the very least attractive, today….and are likely to be more so on the future if, as forecast, the price of fuel continues to rise. (What better commercial inducement can there be to reducing one’s carbon footprint.)

With ever increasing emphasis now being placed on Health and Safety and louder calls from operators for even safer operating conditions for their employees, its not surprising that Montracon leads the field when it comes to the introduction of features designed to help reduce the alarming number of avoidable accidents that occur.
Whether its safer access to and from the trailer decks, more secure movement along the top deck or helping to secure loads both in transit and when curtains are drawn back, Montracon has listened to its customers and has acted.
