Scania have been one of the leading manufacturers of tractor units for many years, and as a brand it is known as the third largest heavy goods vehicle maker in the world, the history of the Scania Company tells its own success story.
The company was formed in 1891 in Europe, and has had a solid focus on developing heavier vehicles for transportation and goods haulage; which include trucks
, buses and have even developed marine engines.
It would be unusual not to see a Scania truck out on the roads of the commercial world, as the company operates out of over 100 countries.
Scania vehicles are robust, unique in design and are hard working which is great for the long distance driver. The cabins are comfortable with clean lines, easy to use readouts and controls; and often have a roomy sleeper in the back of some of the larger vehicle cabins.
It is interesting to know that the Scania fleet became more ‘eco-friendly’ in 1999 when they produced the ‘Euro-3’ series of low-emission engines, this followed the upgrade of trucks and buses in 1996 when Scania introduced the 4-Series generation of vehicles.
Scania didn’t stop there as they also produced a newer version of the very successful V8 in the year 2000; the 16 liter V-8 was born.
The year 2000 incidentally also saw the 1,000,000 Scania roll off the production lines.
When a heavy goods vehicle driver or logistics company purchases a single unit or fleet of Scania trucks
they know they are getting a reliable product, which has a service reputation that goes above and beyond the call of duty.
It does not matter if you purchase a newer or older heavy goods vehicle as they stand the test of time better than most.
They are also not the most expensive trucks on the road which make Scania attractive to everybody in the transportation and haulage industry.
Scania is definitely one option that heavy goods drivers and operators should take at a look at, the vehicles are great value for money, have fantastic service history and reputation which every long or short distance driver deserves to be a part of.
