Fast as light­ning

Herald Sun - Motoring - - Front Page -

Get­ting ur­gent freight to min­ing com­pa­nies quickly has won Perth com­pany Blue Light­ning Freight many friends, and boss Steve Ea­ton cred­its the reli­a­bil­ity and cost ef­fec­tive­ness of the UD trucks he has used since 1998. The orig­i­nal UD, an MK245, clocked up 1.6 mil­lion km without a drama, he says. ‘‘I can’t say enough in praise of UD trucks,’’ he says. ‘‘They just run and run and it is re­ally easy to check the vi­tals without hav­ing to lift the cabs, which is im­por­tant for our driv­ers when they are trav­el­ling vast dis­tances and vir­tu­ally liv­ing in the trucks.’’
