McLanachan Transport Complete Fleet Rollout

McLanachan Transport Limited (MTL) recently welcomed thirteen new tractor units to complete their twenty-unit acquisition. Ten of the Scania Sleeper Highlines are by a direct investment of £2.5 million by MTL, with a further ten as part of a lease agreement with Scania.

The total investment is part of McLanachan Transports' growth strategy in line with the company's ambitious plans to increase its UK and European logistics routes driven by customer demand for increased volume deliveries.

Damian McLanachan, Managing Director of MTL, commented: "We work with some of Europe's largest food and Pharmaceutical manufacturers who regularly require high-volume deliveries from the Scottish Highlands to the Swiss Alps, and our fleet must be capable of matching their high demands. These are the same demands we place on ourselves and our drivers; we want them to have the best vehicles and trailers as they traverse the continent."

Damian continued: "The £2.5 million investment by MTL and our lease agreement with Scania will help us achieve our five-year strategic plan and allow us to push ahead with longer-term growth ambitions to keep MTL at the forefront of European Logistics."
