Spalding-based Garn Transport has ordered 25 Scania R 440 twin-steer tractors to be delivered this year. The vehicles are being supplied by Scania Limited’s Spalding depot on full five year contract hire agreements.
The deal follows an order by Garn Transport during 2009 for 8 trucks – which were the first Euro 5 Scania vehicles in Garn’s fleet. All trucks are equipped with Scania’s automated gear-changing system Opticruise.
Commenting on the deal, the transport company’s MD Richard Garn said: “I find the combination of Scania Opticruise and Euro 5 extremely appealing and the fuel returns to date have certainly been impressive.”
He added that aftersales support was also a factor in his choice to opt for Scania. The new tractor units will be used in Garn Transport’s UK-wide distribution operations.
