Norbert Dentressangle has taken delivery of the first road tractor to meet the Euro VI standards.  The new Mercedes-Benz truck has a Blue Tec 6 engine, which reduces particle emissions by 50 per cent and nitrogen oxide emissions by 77 per cent. 

On 7 February, Hervé Montjotin, MD and Head of Norbert Dentressangle’s Transport Division, was joined at the company’s Sérézin du Rhône site in South Eastern France by Martial Valente, Purchasing Director for the Transport Division, to receive the keys to the new Mercedes-Benz truck.

The Euro VI standards will be compulsory for all new heavy goods vehicles from 1 January 2014.
