Danish haulier leaps at the chance to invest in Euro 6

When transport company Bach og Pedersen Fragt needed new distribution trucks, its owners had no qualms about investing in Scania Euro 6.

Based in the Danish city of Randers, transport company Bach og Pedersen Fragt is in operation around the clock. During the day, its fleet of 35 trucks distributes goods in, and around, Randers, while at night the vehicles are used for transportation between various Danish shipping centres.

Minimise environmental impact

Recently the company needed to invest in new vehicles. Because it aims to minimise the environmental impact of its operation, the company chose trucks powered by Scania’s 9-litre Euro 6 engine.

Carsten Pedersen, part-owner of Bach og Pedersen Fragt, is extremely comfortable with the operating costs associated with Euro 6.

“The repair and maintenance contract is not more expensive for the Euro 6 vehicles,” he says. “We do what we do best and leave service and maintenance to the workshops.”

Driver appeal

With driver working-environment and fuel-efficiency two key operating factors for the company, Bach og Pedersen Fragt decided on Scania Streamline trucks with low-entry cabs.

“Scania’s spacious cab is popular among our drivers,” Pedersen says. “This means a happier workforce, and that we have happy drivers to work with on a daily basis.”
