Building on their existing exclusive partnership, H.Essers last week signed up to buy at least another 850 MAN trucks, spread over a period of three years, from 2017 to 2019 inclusive. These will be vehicles of several types, including the TGX 18 tonne 4×2 tractor units of the vario, ultra & bulk types, 6×2 pushers and TGM 18 tonne 4×2 rigids.
The trucks are all equipped with the latest generation MAN Euro 6c engines, with unrivalled performance in terms of fuel economy, reliability and efficiency. Furthermore, the trucks have MAN EfficientCruise, TipMatic gearbox with Intarder and built-in GPS.
The keys to the first vehicle under this new agreement were handed over during the IAA, in the presence of VIPs including H.Essers President Noël Essers, Executive Board Member Sales & Marketing Heinz-Jürgen Löw, Managing Director MAN Truck & Bus Belgium, Marc De Baerdemaeker and Sales Director MAN Truck & Bus Belgium, Stijn Tielens. Once again, this is confirmation of a successful partnership in the logistics sector.
