PostNord and Scania closed a deal according to which the automaker will supply heavy trucks for the distribution of packages and letters in Norway, Denmark and Sweden.
“The deal confirms that Scania has trucks for both local and long haul transport services that meet PostNord’s requirements for quality and for high performance when it comes to fuel consumption and environmental impact, ” says Peter Eriksson, Senior Key Account Manager at Scania International Fleet Sales.
More than half of the order will be delivered with Scania’s P-series trucks, used for both regional and local distribution. The trucks feature a 9-litre 230 hp engine and the Scania Opticruise automated gearchanging system. The order for longer distances will be delivered with Scania’s G-series trucks that are equipped with a 13-litre 400 hp engine. All Scania trucks meet the EEV, the highest environmental classification.
The PostNord order is Scania’s single largest sale so far this year. PostNord is a holding company formed in 2009 by the Danish-based Post Danmark A/S and the Swedish-basedPostenAB. Since then it has offered logistics and communication solutions to, from and within the Nordic region. The company has around 1,600 trucks.
