When it was launched in 2012 the latest Mercedes-Benz Actros made headlines, not only thanks to its attractive styling, but because of its ability to sip diesel. Fuel efficiency has continued to improve, and Mercedes claims that the latest Actros, with its second generation Euro 6 engine, is some 7% more efficient than the original Euro 5 version. Its impressive fuel economy was confirmed by Commercial Motor magazine, when in 2017 an Actros running at 44 tonnes managed 8.65mpg around its test route, setting a new record for a Euro 6 truck in the process.
With numerous cab heights and widths, there is a bewildering number of Actros variants available. Meanwhile the distribution sector is well catered for by the Atego rigid range (6.5 to 16 tonnes) and Antos rigids and tractor units (18 tonnes upwards).
With its striking appearance, it’s easy to understand why the Arocs construction range is proving popular, in particular as an 8×4 tipper. But for those operators who prefer a lower cab, Mercedes offers the Econic. This low-entry truck, which until recently was used solely by the refuse industry for kerbside collection, is becoming increasingly popular in the construction sector, particularly in London. The Unimog utility trucks, and Sprinter, Vito and Citan vans, complete what is surely the most extensive range of commercial vehicles offered by a single manufacturer.

At Asset Alliance Group, our primary role is to help you select the best option for your business to optimize your P&L, balance sheet, cash flow and tax management through the range of options that are available to you.
As contract hire and leasing specialists, we offer an industry-leading contract hire product with or without maintenance that is built on an unrivalled understanding of the commercial vehicle sector. Our contract hire solutions range from the smallest single trucks and trailers to low emission and alternative fuel vehicles and fleet management of the UK’s largest logistics providers.
A finance lease differs from other commercial vehicle leasing in many ways, but it remains a fixed-term contract which allows you the benefit of an asset without ultimate ownership.
For companies that require a contract hire arrangement, but over a more flexible period, our solution is FlexiHire. This works similarly to our contract hire arrangements but is offered on a 12-month rolling contract.
Hire purchase is instalment financing for those who ultimately wish to own the asset and assume all associated costs of maintaining the vehicle or trailer. It differs from asset leasing primarily in ownership, but it also presents other financing methods that may better suit your business.
With almost 5,000 vehicles under management, we are true commercial vehicle specialists in servicing and maintaining trucks and trailers and all forms of commercial vehicles.
