Pearly Kings of the Road

Pearly Kings of the Road

They say that good things come in threes, and for 3 of Fast Forward's drivers that is certainly true.
Celebrating 3 decades of trading - a pearl anniversary - Fast Forward International has taken delivery of 3 new Volvo trucks painted in a special pearlescent version of our striking red & silver livery. Pictured with Paul Cogger from Volvo dealership M C Truck & Bus at a handing over ceremony at the Sittingbourne Head Office, MD Colin McKay mused on the changes in the industry over the last 30 years. The new trucks - equipped with air conditioning, central heating and night coolers for those sultry Mediterranean nights - are a world apart from the trucks he drove when the business was founded, some of which didn't even have a basic heater. In 1980, without the benefit of mobile phones, satellite tracking and messaging systems, communication with the office was dependent on finding a public phone box that worked - and having a large supply of 10 pence pieces!The good old days? Probably not!
