A total of 16 Mercedes-Benz Atego 1524s were added to the fleet of Reder Transporte. The transport company from Hörsching near Linz uses state-of-the-art vehicle technology in distribution traffic and operates the Atego across Austria.
For Harald and Günther Reder as managing directors of Reder Transporte, the decisive factor for the purchase of these trucks was the ergonomics and comfort of the vehicles: “The drivers are extremely satisfied with the Mercedes-Benz Atego – and this is important to us.”
Reder Transporte is a fifth generation family business founded in 1903. Today, the Reder Group owns three brands: Reder Transporte KG, Erro Spedition- und Handelsgesellschaft mbH and Tazytrans Logistik GmbH in Ennsbach, Lower Austria.
