Scania Registers Largest European Order from UK-Based Infrastructure Company

Published On Feb 10, 2016By Prashant Talreja

Scania has grabbed a massive order for over 2000 trucks from Eddie Stobart, a UK based infrastructure agency. This marks the brand's largest purchase yet in the European market. Included in the order were Scania's G-series 4×2 sleeper cab tractor units and R-series 6×2 mid-lift and 6×2/4 twin-steer tractor units operating with SCR-only Euro 6 Engines of 410bhp and 450bhp. Scania will be delivering the vehicles to Eddie Stobart and its associate companies over the next two years, starting this March. A major share of the model deliveries will be in accordance to a 36-month contract hire agreement, including road fund license and repair and maintenance.

William Stobart, Executive Chairman for Eddie Stobart, said, “Scania has long played a major role in our fleet and we are naturally extremely pleased to be once again committing to the marque. We have been impressed with Scania’s operating economy over the life of the vehicle and the performance of Scania’s 410 and 450 SCR-only Euro 6 engines. These factors, together with the consistent levels of service provided by Scania’s dealer network, are the reasons behind our decision to opt for Scania.”

Remarking over the deal, Claes Jacobsson, Managing Director, Scania, said, “This is the fourth time Eddie Stobart and its associated companies have placed a major order with us, the first two being for 1,000 vehicles in 2010 and 2012 followed by 1,500 units in 2014. We are naturally delighted that the long-established relationship between our organizations has not only flourished but continues to grow.”
