ATE Truck and Trailer Sales has received its first order from Myanmar (formerly Burma), hailing the deal a “lucrative new export route”.

Wolverhampton-based ATE, part of the Asset Alliance Group, has sold 11 pre-owned trucks, a mix of Scania R420 and R480 6x2 tractor units, to a customer in the south-east Asian nation. They will take 40 days to arrive at the port of Yangon from Felixstowe.

ATE sales director James Jenkins said: “Myanmar is gradually becoming open for business and we’re pleased to have secured our first deal, as its appetite for commercial vehicles continues to grow. South-east Asia is a key export market for European-made commercial vehicles.

“The customer was delighted to hear how quickly we could arrange to get the trucks loaded and shipped to Yangon.”
