BRIS­BANE-based food ser­vice dis­trib­u­tor Queens­land Frozen Food Ser­vices has added six Hino 500 medium-duty trucks, tak­ing to 27 its fleet of Hi­nos. QFFS is happy to be an all-Hino fleet, manag­ing di­rec­tor Bob Pe­berdy says, be­cause the trucks of­fer qual­ity and ful­fil his com­pany’s needs for use­abil­ity and ser­vice. Us­ing a com­mon freezer body on all trucks adds to the flex­i­bil­ity of the QFFS op­er­a­tion. ‘‘All staff can drive all the trucks in our fleet, and are very pleased with the im­prove­ments in the lat­est trucks, which make them safer and eas­ier to use,’’ Pe­berdy says. The lat­est trucks are GH 1727 mod­els with 190kW com­mon-rail tur­bod­iesel en­gines, anti-skid brakes, hill-start and cruise. They’re avail­able with six-speed and nine-speed man­ual gear­boxes, as well as an au­to­matic trans­mis­sion. The GVM is 16,000kg, with a GCM of 32,000kg on man­ual mod­els.
