The order includes eight Hydrapak and 16 Non-Hydrapak trucks with drivers having the benefit of new features including Advanced Emergency Braking and Lane Departure Warning as standard. As part of HOYER’s growth strategy, further vehicles will be tendered early next year.
“We are pleased to announce the arrival of new additions to our Scania fleet,” Allan Davison, operations director of HOYER Petrolog in the UK.
“Scania has always offered an exceptionally reliable vehicle whilst also bringing the environmental benefits of returning excellent fuel economy and, importantly, this vehicle is always a popular choice with our driver workforce.”
The new Scania P450s join an existing UK fleet of more than 500 HOYER vehicles operating nationally across HOYER’s UK sites
The deal sees all vehicles placed on a Fixed Price Maintenance package giving HOYER certainty over its vehicle costs throughout the next five years. All trailers connected to the tractor units will be maintained at Scania’s workshops
As part of its commitment to sustainability throughout its global operations, HOYER measures its logistics activity on a number of criteria including fuel consumption and the CO2 emissions of all transport in accordance with the CEFIC Guideline of the European Chemical Industry Council.
