Dougwell's road-transport fleet is as versatile as the list of roles we fill; both long and short haul of equipment, materials or bulk and waste loads. As well as support vehicles such as small and medium vans, and a range of four wheel operators, Dougwell has a comprehensive lorry fleet. These include a number of various type tractor-units with low-loader, flat-bed and tipper-trailers and we also have 7.5 and 18 ton rigid-tipper lorries. Dougwell operate mainly Volvo Trucks with whom we have a great relationship, but we also have a MAN TGA double-drive tractor unit which serves us well and Renault Kerax and DAF CF eight-wheel lorries. For now we're happy with Volvo Trucks but as new products come to market we'll try the ones which promise to best meet our client's needs.
Dougwell follow a fleet policy which meets the needs of our clients in real time. So, we change that fleet list as those needs change, even, as so often happens in business, when those needs change quickly. Through our relationships with other companies such as FPH Ltd. and Volvo Trucks Ireland, Dougwell has a huge capacity of vehicles available to us for work at home or abroad.
Like our plant, all of our vehicles are maintained regularly both mechanically and aesthetically. All of our lorries are fully compliant with Irish, European and international safety, environmental and quality standards and all vehicles are tested every year. We are a fully licensed hauler and we also hold a waste-disposal license and qualify for all necessary permits such as those for heavy low-loader hauls. All Dougwell operators are fully trained and certified and that training and certification is constantly being updated and expanded so our clients contracts are always with the right people.
