The new Scania R cab is seen more and more. No wonder Scania is the premium brand on the European market. Its popular among drivers and operators. For a just developed truck is rather traditionally styled. Yes, it kept the necessary resemblance with the outgoing series but lacks the flair of something new.
A nice Volvo FH Globetrotter run by Dutch opertorVan Der Sluis. The colourful Volvo is hooked to a three axled flatbed semi-trailer. Van der Sluis is doing a lot of construction materials and machinery transport. It's owning a mixed fleet of several major European brands.
L Van Loo is owning this good looking Scania S series. The rig was caught by my camera on the Dutch A50 between Apeldoorn and Arnhem. The big Swede is offering bags of space and a flat floor to its driver. The driving position is superb....its bed is also typical of Scania and made of bits and pieces.
A man TGX XLX owned by Portuguese haulage company STIB Transportes. MAN updated the TGX two years ago, recognizable by a slightly modified grill section. Strange enough it took MAN a very long time before the new ones started running. In the meanwhile, MAN is now busy with a real update of the same cab.
The small Iveco EuroCargo is one of the major products in the Iveco line up. It position differs a lot from the bigger Iveco trucks. The Stralis is still struggling with its image. A lot of the drivers don't want one, the EuroCargo doesn't have this problem. Its a trouble-free "happy" workhorse.
Action one of the most expanding shop chains is Europe is using a large fleet of double-decker semi-trailers for its distribution. It's selling mainly non-food products in a number of European countries. The weight is often low and can be voluminous, it's explaining the two axled concept.
