Saints Transport scores 50 new MAN TGX units


MAN Truck and Bus has supplied Saints Transport with 50 new MAN TGX tractor units with XLX sleeper cabs.

The Heathrow-based airfreight specialist runs a fleet of 200 MANs, and chief executive Piers Carroll said the new arrivals grant the firm "peace of mind" that they are operating "the very latest technology".

The new trucks feature 12.4-litre engines, capable of 480hp at 1,800rpm.

Carroll said Saints sticks with MAN because the manufacturer offers cost-effective solutions to its fleet requirements.

He said: “Our huge fleet encompasses practically every type of vehicle.

"Anyone can promise to do something, whether they have the fleet and capacity to uphold these promises, is a different matter."
