Steel Company Buys New Freightliner Cascadia

The latest vehicle becomes the fifth Cascadia to join Glen Cameron Group’s fleet, with safety and efficiency at the crux of the decision to go with a Cascadia.

The new vehicle will run a range of Stramit steel products for its Fair Dinkum Builds and Taurean Door Systems brands between Melbourne and Sydney.

The Cascadia comes with a full suite of safety equipment including advanced emergency braking systems, lane departure warning systems and electronic stability control.

Stramit also opted to go with a sideguard assist system, which uses a radar to see down the passenger side and alert the driver of moving people or objects in the blind spot.

"Safety is paramount to Stramit and it is critical to us that we select the safest trucks available, such as the Cascadia, and have them maintained to the high standards of the Glen Cameron Group fleet," Stramit sales and operations planning manager Malcolm Thomas says.

"These trucks share the road with other motorists and we need to do everything we can to protect our own people and those around them with these advanced safety systems."

Thomas says the safety options made available on the Cascadia were pivotal to Stramit’s decision to purchase a new version of the model.

"For a driver to really be safe they have to be comfortable, so we are pleased that Glen Cameron Group is investing in advanced and comfortable trucks such as the Cascadia," Thomas says.

With its 13-litre Detroit engine and lower emissions, Stramit says that the Cascadia meets its protocols that mirror parent company Fletcher Building.

Glen Cameron Group national fleet manager Greg Morris says he chose the 116 Cascadia model with an integrated DT12 fully automated transmission ad bulbar with built-in LED lights.

"Fuel efficiency, driver comfort and the latest technology, including all of the safety features we have become accustomed to in our Mercedes-Benz Actros models over the years, were all part of the reasons we choose Cascadia," Morris says.

"The safety features in these trucks have progressed so much over the past five years."
