Iveco’s Stralis range of heavy vehicles has received an endorsement for their performance from a key client.
KN Drinks Logistics has praised the lorries after taking delivery of 164 Iveco Stralis Active Time tractor units, the largest single order placed for the Stralis by a UK company.
The firm, which transports drinks products across the country for its parent company Kuehne & Nagel Group, will now be using the vehicles to replace its existing Stralis fleet at its five distribution centres.
Trevor Hewitt, group fleet engineer at Kuehne & Nagel, stated that it chose to use Iveco’s vehicles once again having considered the merits of a number of other manufacturers.
He said: “The decision to replace like-for-like follows the proven performance of the vehicles in our fleet, combined with the competitive whole-life costs of the Stralis.”
This comes after the Stralis range last month received a recommendation from paper supplier Elliot Baxter, which also praised the vehicles for their whole-life cost advantages.
