Lithuanian road transport giant Girteka Logistics is set to expand and update its fleet after agreeing to purchase 2,000 latest generation Volvo FH trucks.
Volvo say improved safety, increased driver comfort and reduced fuel consumption are among the expected gains Girteka Logistics can expect from the new vehicles.
This view is shared by Edvardas Liachovičius, CEO of Girteka Logistics, who referred to the three factors above when describing the benefits of the purchase:
The new Volvo FH optimizes uptime and fuel efficiency, and at the same time offers the driver a great working environment. With this investment we will contribute to increased safety on the roads and also cut emissions, due to the outstanding fuel efficiency. We are very happy to partner with Volvo Trucks on the journey towards zero accidents and reduced environmental impact.
The latest generation Volvo FH trucks also boast a new driver interface as well as optional, adaptive high beam headlights.
Volvo say that a significant proportion of the 2,000 trucks ordered by Girteka Logistics are I-Save models, which offer up to 10% extra fuel efficiency than standard models.
In a statement published this morning, the Swedish manufacturer added that it was “very proud” Girteka Logistics had made the order. The relationship between the companies now dates back 15 years.
Production of Volvo Trucks’ new heavy duty range is to start in March 2021 and the trucks will be delivered to Girteka Logistics during the year.
