BBA Shipping and Transport puts an Oakley-bodied Scania horebox on the road

 

Newmarket-based equestrian shipping specialist BBA Shipping and Transport has taken delivery of its first Scania, a G410 with an Oakley-built nine-stall racehorse body.

Supplied by local dealer TruckEast with a seven-year repair and maintenance contract, it is expected to average 100,000km per year, mostly on five-day runs between France and Ireland.

BBA MD Kevin Needham said: “When we were looking at options we knew the upfront cost was higher, but we believe it is that for a reason. For the length of service our horseboxes run, the lifetime value of Scania worked out better for us. We needed a truck that delivers our requirements but above all, we want one that is reliable, with the back-up and service behind us.”
