Waberer’s €100m truck contract out to tender

Waberer’s International is to invest some €100 million in 1,300 new Euro 6 MEGA truck-trailers with the contract out to tender.

More than a quarter of the firm’s fleet, which averages two-years old, equipped with Euro 5 EEV environment-friendly engines will be replaced with Euro 6 trucks.

Fuel consumption and traffic load is expected to remain at similar levels to before, as the more efficient Euro 6 trucks have a five per cent larger unit capacity. 

Waberer’s investment is part of a series of measures aiming to double last-year’s revenues of 452 million Euros by year 2020. With the goal to accelerate the increase of sales, Waberer’s has continued its commercial offensive involving the creation of a network of subsidiaries in Europe’s major market centers.

Subsequently to the establishment of Waberer’s France in Paris this spring, Waberer’s UK is about to start operation and the formation of the Waberer’s company in the Netherlands is also in an advanced state.
