Lutterworth, Leicestershire based Nationwide Platforms (a LOXAM company) has turned to Keltruck to equip its fleet with Scania vehicles.
Nationwide Platforms, the UK’s largest provider of powered access equipment, has taken delivery of 69 Scania vehicles supplied by Keltruck.
Comprising a mix of 19 rigids and 50 tractor units, these are the first Scania vehicles to be operated by the company.
The impressive UK fleet was supplied by Tony Biddlestone, Account Manager.
Commenting on the deal Tony said:
Since the start of discussions with Nationwide Platforms back in 2018 the relationship between all parties has grown to become one of great trust and friendship.
From the outset pricing was always there in background but safety, along with the latest in legislation, was at the forefront of NP’s tender. Due to the range of options that the Scania modular build system offers, we were able to offer all requirements from factory, without the involvement of any third party suppliers.
Direct Vision was one of the topics rightly seen by the customer as an important safety feature, not only for London but for all of their transport operations. Being able to offer the P cab high roof sleeper with factory fitted ‘city windows‘ therefore ticked a lot of boxes. Our electronic parking brake was another key safety feature which, along with full catwalks, meant the trucks met all of the customer’s operational requirements.
From talking to the drivers, who have come from DAF XF cabs, they really love the spacious Scania cabs whilst still having great low down vision.
The relationship with NP has really gone from strength-to-strength, with another 48 ordered for this year.
