That is what ICS Distribution found out when recently completing their order for four R425 6×2/4 CR19 Highline Scania trucks. The vehicles, which will operate out of their headquarters in West Bromwich, West Midlands, are on a 3-year contract hire package, including full repair and maintenance.
The deciding factor for ICS’s investment was when they compared like-for-like with other manufacturers with the Scania package coming out on top for quality, cost and mileage, as ICS Distribution‘s Transport Manager, Martin Checketts, explains:
“When comparing Scania with other manufacturers their contract hire package came out on top. Both in terms of costs, quality, aftersales geography and also our relationship with Keltruck.”
All vehicles were fitted with Scania C200 Communicators, the latest telematics solution from Scania which offers effective tools to connect the vehicle to the office.
Established in 2004, ICS Distribution Limited operates 13 vehicles, this latest purchase being the first Scania vehicles to enter their fleet. The vehicles will be used for general haulage and will deliver throughout the UK.
