The Actros In Long Distance Haulage​

The Actros has the ability to deliver top performance both on the road and on your balance sheet. It is easy to say the Actros is distinctly profitable as it’s fuel efficient, provides a high standard of comfort for the driver, and with a rating of up to 44 tonnes and several model variants it is possible to configure your truck to your exact requirements within the long distance haulage industry. Whether you operate throughout the UK or internationally, the Actros is up to the challenge.

Design

​The Actros is available with industry specific vehicle concepts, for example, if a key feature you need for your vehicle is heavy payload capabilities then the Actros Loader could be the right choice. On the other hand, the Actros Volumer is the right decision for volume oriented applications. A range of wheelbases, end cross members and frame overhangs provide a high degree of body mounting ability, meaning whatever the end-use application, the Actros can meet your needs.  The range of cab variants offer spacious and comfortable working, living and sleeping accommodation options for all applications found within the long distance sector. In turn, this increases productivity within its ergonomically designed driver’s workspace, as well as offers restful relaxation with its modern, comfortable interior and multimedia functions for time spent away from the wheel.

Performance

You are guaranteed ease of manoeuvrability and precision with sensitive direct steering features, and its innovative rear axle guides provide impressive transverse ability as well as good understeer and oversteer characteristics, even at high speeds. The Mercedes PowerShift 3 automated transmission and immediately responsive engine provides exceptional driving dynamics, and the truck also features precise gear selection oriented around the driver’s environment at the time, so you consistently achieve the maximum performance regardless of the situation.


Safety

The Actros comes with a comprehensive scope of safety features as standard. These include; Active Break Assist 4, and Lane Keeping Assist. All safety features aim to ease the stress and work load of the driver, and counteract fatigue, all of which are key elements for the distribution industry.
