Den Hartogh Logistics, which moves its headquarters to Rotterdam on 1 January 2013, has ordered 70 new TGS and TGX series MAN trucks, and has taken an option on an additional 20 vehicles.
Den Hartogh has selected MAN trucks to support its strong focus on Operational Excellence, which places particular emphasis on cost efficiency and reliability of service. All the trucks are specified as MAN EfficientLine, which incorporates a host of fuel and weight-saving measures. The purchase is also another step forward in Den Hartogh's continual push to reduce CO2 emissions.
According to Den Hartogh's Member of the Board Gerard van der Kroon: "The decision to choose MAN trucks was driven by corporate financial motives together with the high safety demands we place on new material acquisitions. We maintain and repair our own extensive international fleet, so we also welcome the backing of the MAN FleetCare logistics service to ensure super-fast availability of whatever spare parts we need."
