Immediately following the recent Latin American launch of Scania’s new generation trucks, the Amaggi Group has ordered 300 Scania R 500 units. This is Scania Brasil’s largest single end customer order ever.
The Amaggi Group is among the largest Brazilian agribusiness companies and the world’s largest soya bean producer. “In purchasing these vehicles, we can meet Amaggi’s logistics needs and we already have a long history of operating our own fleet,” says Executive President Judiney Carvalho, Amaggi Group.
The 25-metre tractor and trailer combinations will each load 49.5 tonnes of produce. They will be integrated into Amaggi’s extensive logistics system, which combines road, rail and waterway transport. The trucks will be deployed on seven major intermodal transport routes.
All vehicles will be covered by Scania Maintenance with Flexible Plans. By continuous monitoring of connected vehicles, this service provides adapted maintenance and thereby increases vehicle uptime.
