TruckEast has supplied Lutterworth, Leicestershire-based Bruntingthorpe Logistics with two Scania P450 car transporters.

The 6x2 low roof sleeper cab trucks with 13-litre engines include extended beds and external storage lockers on both sides. Trailer bodywork is the new Odyssey model from Essex-based Transporter Engineering.

Each will cover about 100,000 km a year, five-days-a-week, transporting new and used cars on overnight runs for the rental market and manufacturers. Transport manager at Bruntingthorpe Logistics, Martyn Rose said: “Operationally we need the low roof option, but in spite of this the sleeper cab is extremely comfortable and offers a lot more space.”

Bruntingthorpe Logistics operates a fleet of 16 car transporters - 80% of them Scanias.
“The whole team at TruckEast Corby give us a great level of service and are always willing to help”, Rose said.
