Top-spec Iveco S-Way 530 duo joins Alan Davie fleet

Iveco S-Way Alan Davies

Alan Davie Ltd has just added a pair of Iveco S-Way 530 6×2 tractor units to its fleet, supplied by family-run dealer AM Phillip.

Iveco vehicles have been a staple of the fleet over the years, with the iconic TurboStar being a firm favourite with the company founder in the early years.

“That truck was ahead of its time,” said boss, Alan Davie. “It would outperform anything else, a special truck, it pulled like hell!”

Each Alan Davie truck features the unique yellow and brown livery that has become synonymous with the Scottish firm over its 45-year history.

Pairing especially well with these S-Way, the complementary colour pallet is further enhanced by contrasting chrome air horns, alloy wheels and bold spotlights.

“We’ve been buying Iveco trucks from AM Phillip for years,” said Ian Davie, transport manager. “Their service and support have been excellent with us developing personal connections with those that work there. The dealer experience makes a big difference.”

Powered by the Cursor 13 diesel engine, these new S-Way 530 trucks provide the performance required for heavy haulage while also meeting operational needs for fuel economy.

Possessing 2400 Nm of torque, the vehicles are at home on both national and European runs.

Driver feedback on the latest S-Ways to join the fleet has been overwhelmingly positive. Ian Davie said: “Drivers really enjoy getting behind the wheel of the S-Way. They are extremely comfortable and are capable of covering big miles with ease. You don’t hear any of our drivers complaining about the Iveco vehicles, they are very good trucks.”

These S-Ways are set to cover over 180,000 km each year, so driver comfort was paramount in their specification. Creature comforts include a fridge, multiple charging points, as well as Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility.

The addition of a daytime cooler also regulates cab temperature without needing the engine to run.

Each vehicle is also fitted with a Connectivity Box with Smart Pack, giving the operator access to advanced features such as Smart Reporting to help boost efficiencies, Vehicle Monitoring for keeping abreast of vehicle performance and maintenance, as well the innovative Easy Way smartphone app.
