Scania completes delivery of 253-vehicle order for Asda04 February 2016

Asda has taken delivery of 37 Scania P 450 LA6x2/2MNA lightweight sleeper cab tractor units for its petroleum distribution fleet, the last of a 253-vehicle order it placed with Scania late last year.

As well as the petroleum distribution vehicles, Asda also took delivery of more than 200 new vehicles for its base and chilled fleets in December.

The bulk of the order comprises Scania G-series sleeper cab models, featuring Scania’s 410bhp Euro 6 SCR-only engine.

All trucks in the order will be maintained by the Scania UK network, which also provides a full service for much of Asda’s trailer fleet.

“Scania won the business in the face of strong competition, with fuel performance and aftersales care being key factors underpinning our decision,” says Peter Hey, Asda’s fleet procurement manager.

“We have also enjoyed a long relationship with Scania – 23 years and counting – and the service they provide around the country, coordinating and providing a wide range of services supporting our cost effectiveness and our O licence compliance, is incredibly important to our business.”
