BAGGED: First Scanias for Samworth Brothers
Leicester-based Samworth Brothers Distribution have nabbed their first-ever Scania vehicles.
The haul, of 15 R 440 LA6x2/2MNA Streamline Highline tractor units, follows extensive fuel trials, which resulted in consumption improvements of up to 1.6mpg.
These trials were followed by a 12month evaluation using Scania Truck Rental vehicles, which returned similar results.
Richard Burnett, Managing Director of Samworth Brothers Distribution, said: “As a responsible business achieving maximum fuel efficiency is very important to us, for our operational capability and in terms of environmental footprint.
“This has been an important project for us and the initial indications are that we are seeing good improvements.”
Samworth Brothers are a fourth-generation family business specialising in producing premium foods in the UK.
