UK-based Eddie Stobart and A. W. Jenkinson Forest Products have signed a supply agreement with Scania for 1,000 trucks, which are to be delivered beginning with March until December 2013, with 300 units expected this year. Forest Products requested R-series tractor units and Scania G-series models.

“Scania’s focus on ongoing development will allow Eddie Stobart to continue to provide sustainable distribution and the usual high levels of service to its customers,” declared Stobart Group COO William Stobart.

This means that the company is satisfied with Scania, therefore the positive partnership over the past two years. Stobart Group is well known for its iconic green trucks, 2,280 in number, and for the best vehicle utilization in the history, used to help maximize efficiency and environmental benefits. The company handles collects tones of green waste, round wood, chips, sawdust, bark and other timber co-products each year, from sawmills, forestry sites and wood processing industries from all over the UK.

“Winning such a significant repeat order not only demonstrates that our products meet the operational needs of these two high profile customers day-in day-out, but also the capabilities of our service organisation when it comes to providing a comprehensive range of back-up services on such a large geographical scale,” said Scania UK MD Hans-Christer Holgersson.
