42 new Renault trucks for Van den Bosch


January 9th 2018 - V
an den Bosch Transporten has bought 42 new Renault trucks. The Renault Truck T has been chosen. “A full-fledged and lightweight truck with power and convenience going hand in hand”, says CEO Rico Daandels.


The Renault Truck T with Sleeper Cab has a DTI 11 litre Euro 6 engine and 460 Hp. The truck has a spacious cab, a luxury Recaro seat and quite a few conveniences such as a parking cooler and adaptive cruise control (ACC). Also the ease of operation and the safety options are very modern. The truck is low in weight, resulting in a higher payload, and it fits the lightweight strategy of Van den Bosch Transporten.

Power and convenience
CEO Rico Daandels is pleased to welcome Renault in the fleet. “We have tested the Renault Truck T extensively and it left a very positive impression. Its low weight combined with the high convenience for the driver, the additional power and the favourable cost price per kilometre convinced us to go for this modern Renault truck.”
Ed van Rijswijk, Manager Sales Operations at Renault Trucks Netherlands adds: “We are very proud that Van den Bosch opted for us. Not only confidence in Renault, but also in the BAS Truck Center dealer organization tipped the scales for the Renault trucks. We are looking forward to a pleasant cooperation.”

Extra loading capacity
The new trucks will be deployed for the transport of liquid and dry bulk in Europe. “We are reinforcing our lightweight strategy in the European bulk transport market with this investment”, Rico Daandels explains. “The use of lightweight equipment, such as trucks, containers and chassis, results in a higher payload, enabling the transport of more product volume.” Last year, the fleet was extended with 40ft silo containers, 40ft silo tipper chassis and lightweight 20ft liquid chassis. Investments were also made in connectivity, by equipping all trucks with a Trimble board computer and by providing a Trimble application to subcontractors.

Delivery in February 2018
The new trucks will be delivered by Renault Trucks dealer BAS Truck Center in Veghel. The first trucks are expected to arrive late February 2018.
