Brit European acquires two Mercedes-Benz Actros21 November 2011

Transporter operator Brit European has retained a major contract with Mercedes-Benz – and celebrated by investing in a pair of premium long-haul Actros tractor units.

Under a new, three-year deal Brit European will form the British link of a supply chain for all heavy truck, and Sprinter and Vario van models, that stretches from the manufacturer's factories in Germany to its franchised dealers and bodybuilders across England, Scotland and Wales.

"Our system of moving trucks and vans across Europe is designed to minimise carbon emissions, and is widely recognised for its extremely high green standard," states Richard Broomfield, vehicle logistics manager for Mercedes-Benz UK.

"Of course we're delighted to have retained this very important piece of business, and look forward to building on our long and successful partnership with Mercedes-Benz," comments Brit European operations director Andy Brookes.

And he adds: "The Actros is an excellent heavy truck, superbly reliable, highly fuel-efficient and well-liked by our drivers."
