Matthew Kibble name their latest truck after TTA Director Rachael Scanlin

It’s not every day that you get a truck named after you, but that’s exactly what happened recently to Transport Training Academy Director, Rachael Scanlin. Matthew Kibble Transport Limited, a respected, Nelson-based national transport and distribution service provider named its most recent fleet vehicle in honour of Rachael.

The Volvo Series 4 FH 500BPH truck, with lowered 5th wheel at 1180mm to reduce wind resistance and increase MPG and Dynafleet telematics monitoring driver behaviour modules, is the latest acquisition for the Matthew Kibble fleet, which already boasts an impressive 50 vehicles and 65 plus trailers. They are also previous winners of the prestigious Motor Transport Haulier of the Year award.

Why did they choose to name this truck after Rachael? Well, Matthew Kibble often name their trucks after friends and family; they’ve also occasionally run auctions for a name, but this time, according to Matthew Kibble’s Operations Director, Mark Attwell, they decided to name their latest vehicle after the director of their local Partner. TTA has successfully worked in partnership with Matthew Kibble for a number of years supplying all their logistics training and Mark felt it was fitting that this successful working relationship should be officially recognised.  

So, how does it feel to have a truck named after you? Well, according to Rachael, it’s not only exciting; it’s also a great honour:

“I was surprised when I was told about the truck being named after me. It was something I never really expected to happen, but I have to admit I was excited and delighted when Mark said they were going to name it after me. When I finally saw the truck with my name blazoned on the front I felt very proud indeed. I think it’s a great honour for me personally and also for Transport Training Academy, as it stands as a testament to our great and productive working relationship. I would like to sincerely thank Mark and Matthew Kibble for this wonderful gesture.”
