Danish haulier Jan Petersen celebrated the 30th anniversary of his company, JP Transport, by giving himself a few impressive gifts. He unwrapped two new generation Scania R 500 trucks and a carefully restored Scania 141 with a V8 engine.
Petersen has 24 trucks in operation for varying transports, ranging from steel to refrigerated goods. “Fuel economy is a major consideration for me and that’s why I chose the Scania R 500,” he says. “At the same time, I couldn’t get the idea of owning a V8 out of my head and I’ve always wanted an older truck. Now, I’m really, really happy.”
