Norway Post chooses Scania as main supplier
Scania and Norway Post (Posten Norge AS) have signed a framework agreement under which Scania will supply all trucks with a gross weight exceeding 15 tonnes in a procurement covering three years, with the possibility of a one-year renewal. The agreement also includes repair and maintenance contracts. Deliveries will total about 200 trucks per year.
The deal is one of Scania’s largest single deliveries of trucks in the Nordic countries. For Norsk Scania AS, Scania’s Norwegian distributor, 200 vehicles are equivalent to more than 10 percent of the company’s annual truck sales.
“The agreement with Norway Post is a prestigious contract for Scania’s sales and service organisation in Norway and other Nordic countries. We will be supplying all their heavy trucks, which confirms Scania’s advantage in terms of transport economy – vehicles with high quality and environmental performance, as well as a comprehensive Nordic network of service workshops that live up to Norway Post’s high uptime standards for their vehicles,” says Erik Hansen, Managing Director of Norsk Scania AS.
The trucks will be operated by the transport companies in Norway Post’s Logistics and Bring business area, which aside from postal distribution also performs express services and thermo logistics in the Nordic region, the Baltic countries and elsewhere in Europe.
