Waberer’s ramps up fleet with 440 new trucks from Renault & Volvo
Waberer’s has tooled up its fleet with 440 trucks from Renault and Volvo thanks to a huge investment of around 33.43 million euros.
The Hungarian Haulage giant has purchased 250 New Generation Volvo heavy-duty trucks and 190 more of Renault’s newest TCK Evolution models. The new trucks will hit the roads of Europe in the second half of this year.
Waberer’s says the Volvo models will be the manufacturer’s latest, brand new generation of heavy-duty trucks, launched to market in 2020. The Volvo FH trucks have 460hp engines with 10% better fuel consumption compared to the previous models. Waberer’s says the trucks come equipped with the biggest Globetrotter XL size cabs, the full safety package, the new parking cooler, 4 batteries, internet-connected 9-inch touchscreen side displays and the new LED high beam headlights.
The Volvo FH was also chosen by Girteka, who made an massive order for 2,000 trucks back in February.
The Renault Trucks purchased by Waberer’s International are the newest TCK Evolution 2021 models, which are said to offer significant developments regarding both drivability and cab comfort. Some of these brand new improvements include adjustable steering column, LED headlights, additional and optimized storage spaces, advanced Serenity bed and the latest safety sensors.
Barna Erdélyi, CEO of Waberer’s International plc, says the new trucks had been purchased with “environmental awareness” and “employee satisfaction” in mind.
As a leading logistics company, we at Waberer’s are doing our very best to keep on providing the same reassuring stability and the highest quality of services to all our customers and thus their customers as well. It is in our best interest to make our decisions (regarding these kinds of expansion) with environmental awareness and also employee satisfaction in our minds. This current renewal of our fleet meets all of those expectations and it is indeed an important step towards strengthening our company’s sound foundations.
Last month, Waberer’s revealed that its turnover had dipped in 2020, but added that the changes it had made to the business would put it back on course for a recovery.
