Czech carrier company VCHD Cargo has reported the level of investment in its fleet: this year, the company purchased trucks and trailers worth EUR 2,6 million, which was 8% more year on year. The average age of the company’s fleet is now 2.8 years.
There are now more than 150 trucks and 150 trailers with the VCHD Cargo logo navigating European roads and heading to and from more than 70 European destinations on regular VCHD Cargo lines. The company regularly invests in its fleet in order to maintain its average age under 4 years. This year, VCHD Cargo purchased 27 motor vehicles, mostly Scania swap bodies, and 25 trailers. “After this year’s investments, 100% of our trucks meet the highest EUR 6 emission standards,” says VCHD Cargo CEO Ing. Pavel Sirotek, adding: “We strive to minimise our business’s impact on the environment and we always keep this value in mind when acquiring new vehicles. We also regularly train our drivers in safe and economic driving in order to reduce fuel consumption and emissions.”
The VCHD Cargo fleet includes various types and brands of towing and trailer vehicles, all of which are equipped for the transport of hazardous goods pursuant to ADR. The company specialises in regular cargo export lines typically using swap bodies and makes its technology investments accordingly. “There are many parameters that play a role in our purchasing decisions, first and foremost fuel consumption, safety and driver comfort,” says Pavel Sirotek.
