Dachser deploys first LHVs in Spain
The Dachser companies in Portugal and Spain invested around EUR 9 million in their fleet in the last three years, and recently received the 200th new semi-trailer from vehicle manufacturer Krone. In addition, Dachser has just started to deploy a Mercedes Benz Fuso Canter Eco hybrid for inner city deliveries in Madrid.
On another front, Dachser has become the first company in Spain to use longer, heavier vehicle (LHV) combinations. The units are deployed for network services between Madrid and Barcelona, and Dachser Cargoplus traffic between Arteixo in Galicia and Lleida in Catalonia.
Spain authorised the use of the 25.25 m long LHVs with a maximum weight of 60 t on 24 December 2015. (ben)
