TruckEast in Peterborough has supplied Bretts Transport with four next generation Scania S450 6x2/2 tractor units with Highline cabs.
The 44-tonners feature Scania’s 6-cylinder, 13-litre engine that produces 450hp, as well as heated driver seats, electric roof hatches, additional storage, beds, fridges and microwaves. They are expected to cover 145,000km a year, transporting a mix of ambient food products and packaging across the UK.
Bretts, based in Guyhirn near Wisbech, has taken the vehicles on five-year contract hire from Scania Financial Services. The company will take delivery of another five S450s in April.
MD, Simon Brett, said: “The complexity of the trucks today means we simply don’t have the ability to fully self-maintain in our own workshops, we need the expertise of the main dealer. Not only that but having the vehicles on R&M contracts is also convenient for those vehicles that are based off-site.
“We really wanted to provide a working environment that was both spacious and enjoyable to be in, a truck that our drivers would take pride in."
