Girteka Logistics to order 1,000 Mercedes-Benz Actros trucks

Lithuanian logistics company Girteka Logistics ordered 1.000 state-of-the-art tractor units with Euro VI engines from Mercedes-Benz. A framework agreement has been signed earlier this month. The delivery of the trucks to Girteka Logistics has already started.

“We are proud to win Girteka Logistics as a large customer with the biggest fleet order in Eastern Europe for Mercedes-Benz Trucks in its history”, says Stefan Buchner, Head of Mercedes-Benz Trucks. “We feel honoured by the trust of Girteka Logistics. It clearly shows that our flagship model Actros stays ahead of the tough competition”.

Mindaugas Raila, Chairman of Girteka Logistics: „In the year of our 20th anniversary we decided to modernize our fleet by 1,000 new Mercedes-Benz Actros – an important strategic decision for us. The new Actros convinces by its operating performance, safety equipment and reliability“.

All ordered tractor units for Girteka Logistics are equipped with a level floor BigSpace cab, headroom of 199 centimetres and 890 litres of storage space in order to offer its drivers best working conditions and much freedom of movement on longer tours.

In addition, Girteka Logistics decided on FleetBoard in order to further improve the fuel efficiency of the new trucks. The telematics system collects all vehicle data such as consumption and break related driving style or vehicle wear-and-tear. FleetBoard supports full transparency of the entire fleet and shows further potential of savings.

The fleet consists of 2,900 trucks and 3,100 trailers. Company customers range from local producers to big international companies with major regional distribution centres.
