Alfreton-based KMG Ultra Pure Chemicals Ltd reports that its first Volvo, a FH 540 Dual Clutch 4×2 (right), is doing superbly. “For our European bulk deliveries, Volvo’s I-Shift Dual Clutch transmission has been a revelation,” reports David Roe, supply chain manager UK at KMG. “Having no pauses between gearchanges also makes a huge difference to fuel economy figures. Currently, our FH 540 I-Shift Dual Clutch, running at 40 tonnes GVW, is 10% more efficient than any other truck in the fleet.”
