Lithuanian haulier places mega order
Girteka Logistics is investing in no less than 2,000 of the latest generation Volvo FH trucks. The haulier, based in Lithuania, has 15,000 truck drivers and 8,000 trucks, operating a vast network in Europe and Russia.
Girteka Logistics sees the mega investment as a logical continuation of an excellent 15-year long standing relation between the companies, an opinion that Volvo Trucks certainly shares.
“The new Volvo FH optimises uptime and fuel efficiency, and at the same time offers the driver a great working environment. With this investment we will contribute to increased safety on the roads and also cut emissions, due to the outstanding fuel efficiency,” says Edvardas Liachovičius, CEO of Girteka Logistics.
Production start of Volvo Trucks’ new heavy-duty range is set for March 2021 and the trucks will be delivered to Girteka Logistics during the year. (ben)
