New truck launch proves to be a success

This past month a logistics event was hosted by New Zealand Steel and K&S Freighters to promote the arrival of their new, branded trucks.

The event was well attended with customers and supply chain partners both invited to see the new trucks in action.

The event itself also provided our logistics team with an excellent opportunity to explain the benefits that these newer vehicles offer customers.

  • All four trucks have a Euro 5 rating, which is an international emission standard highlighting the environmental friendliness of vehicles.
  • This rating is further complimented by the fact that the new trucks have a higher carrying capacity compared to our older fleet. With an extra length of 5 metre and an increased carrying capacity of 6 tonnes (50 tonnes in total) these trucks can carry more products in one trip, reducing our overall fuel costs.
