Scania (Great Britain) is showing its support for UK truck drivers by serving them complimentary refreshments.

Starting tomorrow (15 May), the truck maker’s hospitality trailer will be commencing a distribution centre tour, loaded with hot drinks, water and chocolate bars.

"With the majority of truckstops, cafes and roadside pull-ins closed around the UK, the simple matter of obtaining refreshments has become a nigh-on impossible challenge for the nation's transport heroes," commented Stacey Llewellyn-Price, Scania's events manager. "So to help, and to say thank you for all the vital and essential work they are doing, we thought we would transform our hospitality trailer into a free, mobile café, while adhering to the Government’s social distancing policy.

"Many drivers will already be familiar with the trailer as it normally visits many truck shows and events around the country every year. But 2020 is different, of course, so we're doing what we can and now look forward to welcoming as many drivers to enjoy a socially-distanced refreshment break with us as soon as possible – so if you see us at a distribution centre you are visiting, do drop in and see us.”

Scania is on the look-out for suitable venues to add to its refreshment tour. If you have any suggestions please contact
