Pentalver boosts fleet with 52 Scania R450SCRs

Container operator Pentalver has added 52 new Scania R series tractor units to its road haulage fleet. The vehicles are to be split between its Cannock and Felixstowe operations, with 45 and seven vehicles going to each site respectively.

The Scania R450SCRs were provided by Scania dealership Keltruck.

Nick Matthews, general manager at Pentalver’s Cannock operation, said that thepurchases are part of an ongoing fleet restoration programme, which will see the company replace a further 70 vehicles at least in 2016.

Matthews added: “We are delighted to bring an additional fifty-two vehicles to our fleet, demonstrating both our ongoing investment to the UK road haulage industry and the strength of our relationship with Scania.

“Critically, the new vehicles provide great fuel economy and deliver in excess of 10mpg, an impressive 1mpg improvement over our existing vehicles.

"The ‘R’ series also provides a spacious cab for drivers as well as a range of safety features including forward facing cameras and nearside proximity sensors for cycle and pedestrian safety.”
