Eddie Stobart and A W Jenkinson Forest Products have signed a joint-procurement agreement with Scania in the UK for the supply of 1,000 trucks.
The deal mirrors the order placed by the two operators in 2010, which at the time represented Scania’s largest ever supply agreement in the UK.
The trucks are scheduled for delivery between March 2012 and December 2013, with about 300 units entering service this year.
The order is mainly for R-series tractor units but will also include a significant number of Scania G-series models.
“This agreement reflects our on-going satisfaction with Scania and the levels of support provided by the company’s dealer network,” said Stobart Group chief operating officer, William Stobart.
Eddie Stobart now has a fleet of 2,280 trucks.
AW Jenkinson Forest Products and its subsidiaries handle over 2 million tonnes of green waste, roundwood, chips, sawdust, bark and other timber co-products each year.
