Why Nolan's Interstate Transport Orders Seven Mercedes-Benz Actros Trucks

The Lockyer Valley-based family business recently took delivery of the three 2663 Mercedes-Benz Actros models following a positive experience with an Actros demo that was provided by Daimler Trucks Brisbane. Four additional 2663 units will join the fleet in the next few months.

“I’ve had a long relationship with [sales manager] Steve McDonald and he suggested we have a go with an Actros demo,” says Nolan’s Interstate Transport Director, Adrian ‘Flea’ Nolan.

“We put it on and we were really impressed.

“The fuel consumption was the biggest thing, but the drivers really liked it too, which is important.”

The 2663 features a 16-litre six-cylinder engine with 625hp and 3000Nm of torque that meets the stringent Euro 6 emissions standard.

It uses a 12-speed Automated Manual Transmission with a refined crawler function for easy low speed maneuvering.

The Nolan’s Interstate Transport Actros trucks also feature the innovative Predictive Powertrain Control system, which uses topographic map data to help the truck anticipate terrain and select the optimum shift pattern and engine response for maximum fuel economy.

Like all Actros models, the 2663 features the Multimedia Cockpit system, which consists of two large customisable tablet screens that present driver information in super crisp detail.

Nolan’s Interstate Transport places a high importance on safety, which has always been a priority for Mercedes-Benz.

The Actros features the fifth generation Active Brake Assist radar/camera Advanced Emergency Braking System (AEBS), which can now automatically perform full emergency braking for vehicles and pedestrians.

Mercedes-Benz has included the AEBS system as standard specification in Australia for 10 years, and the tradition continues with the new truck.

All new Mercedes-Benz Actros models are supported with a complimentary Best Basic service plan that applies for 500,000km or five years, whichever comes first.
