Mainstream New Zealand is well known for its near-black and yellow colours – with more than 200 trucks on its fleet - but is stepping up to provide a green solution for a key customer.

A bold all-green truck and trailer livery and a sustainability message are the story behind a fleet of five new Scania R 650s that are carrying FMI Building Innovation branding as Mainstream delivers a dedicated nationwide freight service to the building supplies manufacturer.
