Operating conditions in London: How the Econic is protecting pedestrians and cyclists in city traffic

"Protecting vulnerable road users such as cyclists and pedestrians is our top priority," says John Moriarty. He is the boss of Moriarty Haulage and recently bought 15 Mercedes-Benz Econic trucks for the transportation of concrete. And these are frequently on the road in heavy traffic. "Today driving trucks is a high-performance job, especially in London's city centre. The Econic, with its all-round visibility, provides my drivers with a high sense of security," is how Moriarty justifies his decision.

The Econic does indeed offer an unmatched view thanks to its low panoramic window and fully-glazed folding door on the co-driver's side. This and the seat position which is low in comparison to other conventional construction site trucks allow the driver to have direct visual contact with cyclists and pedestrians – a decisive advantage with regard to safety. And when it comes to buying a construction truck that will operate in London, safety is a key purchasing criterion. Companies that take this into consideration are awarded a CLOCS-seal (Construction Logistics and Community Safety) – just like Essex-based Moriarty Haulage.
