Andy  is an agency driver which means he is sent to a variety of different companies and asked to drive different vehicles.  Today he is driving an 18 tonne rigid box lorry which was manufactured in 2005.  It has over 700,000km on the clock, an analogue tachograph and an exhaust brake.  Despite the high mileage the vehicle is well looked after and is mechanically sound.
