The two TGS 26.480 trucks are the first MANs in the leading integrated logistics provider’s fleet.
Attending MAN’s Trucknology Days in Munich in March, Sean Carren, Managing Director of Goldstar Transport, was excited by the extensive MAN range and assembly line showcasing the class-leading technology said Mark Mello, General Manager – Sales, Penske Commercial Vehicles.
“Visiting Trucknology Days with Sean in Germany was a great opportunity to demonstrate MAN’s commitment to product development, maintaining low whole-of-life costs and maximising efficiency,” said Mr Mello.
“There are many parallels between MAN’s business philosophy and Goldstar Transport, particularly in the investment in innovation.”
Exploring several options for fleet upgrades, Goldstar Transport was impressed with MAN’s range of features as evident in the demo model provided.
“We trialled a demo truck from Penske for a month which led to us making this decision to purchase the first MANs in our fleet and we are anticipating great results from them,” said Mr Carren.
“MAN offers some of the best technology and safety systems available not to mention great fuel efficiency.
“And with flexibility in wheelbase, chassis models and ground clearance, MAN was very attractive to us.
“These trucks will form part of the new base of our continuous improvement programme for our Woolworths operations, which may include more MANs in the future.
“We are also working with Penske Truck Rental looking at short and long term rental solutions to assist with peak periods in our business.
“We are extremely excited to see the MAN trucks in our fleet and would like to acknowledge the outstanding work by the Penske Commercial Vehicles team. And as a long-time motorsport enthusiast, I was well aware of Penske and its reputation for excellence so I’m very happy to be working with the Australian Penske operations.”
