Daimler has scooped a big deal with
German logistics provider Lehnkering which includes a comprehensive
service-leasing package.

The world’s largest truckmaker
signed a general agreement with Duisburg-headquartered Lehnkering
at the end of July for the delivery of 220 Mercedes-Benz Actros
trucks over the next four years, ending in 2013. The first Actros
truck is due to be delivered in October.

Mercedes-Benz CharterWay, the
international commercial vehicle financial services, contract hire
and fleet management arm of Daimler, will be providing the full
leasing and service package.

Under the terms of the general
agreement, the truckmaker will build the truck units at the
Mercedes-Benz plant in Wörth, and will deliver them at various
Lehnkering sites in Germany, the Netherlands and Poland.

Head of Mercedes-Benz Trucks Hubertus Troska said: “Lehnkering
and Mercedes-Benz are linked by more than 60 years of partnership.
I am pleased that Lehnkering has once again chosen our trucks and
comprehensive range of services.”
