A record order in Poland: DPD chooses the MAN TGE
MAN Truck & Bus Polska is supplying 140 MAN TGEs to DPD Polska, representing the largest order for the panel van in Poland.
- DPD Polska is purchasing 140 MAN TGE 3.140 panel van vehicles
- The vehicles will be delivered between July and December 2018
- The MAN TGE sets itself apart with its comprehensive safety equipment, exceptional comfort and a guarantee of mobility
In July, MAN Truck & Bus Polska and DPD Polska signed a contract to supply 140 MAN TGE 3.140 vehicles in the panel van version. Deliveries already began in July, and the last van will arrive at the customer at the end of 2018. The white vans featuring the DPD logo come with a driver’s and co-driver’s seat and are characterised by an extensive range of fittings.
“We are proud that it was our brand that DPD Polska chose,” says Grzegorz Rogalewicz, head of van sales at MAN Truck & Bus Polska. “It’s a double début, so to speak, because it’s the first contract of this size that MAN in Poland has had for TGE series vehicles, and for DPD it’s a major contract to purchase state-of-the-art vehicles adapted to the needs of the company, which is why it's so important for both parties,” adds Grzegorz Rogalewicz.
“We decided on the MAN offer mainly because we were convinced by its flexibility and the possibility to configure the vehicles precisely according to our needs,” stresses Maciej Głowacki, Director of Operations at DPD Polska.
It was above all the high level of safety that encouraged DPD Polska to choose the van from MAN, for example the emergency brake assistant fitted as standard in MAN TGE vans, and the high level of working comfort. The MAN TGE is also fitted with air conditioning, a Start & Stop system, a steering wheel with two-way adjustment, and a driver’s seat fitted with a shock absorber and massage function. The low height of the load threshold was another important factor, enabling the vehicle to be emptied faster and more conveniently. Another advantage is the oversized width of the side doors, which ensure convenient loading of even large items, and the size of the loading space, which can fit up to six EUR-pallets. The bulkhead dividing the loading space from the driver’s cab has all the certificates needed in this respect and is extremely strong.
A key question in everyday intensive use of commercial vehicles, apart from the appropriate functionality, is maintenance. For this reason, the overall offering is complemented by a guarantee of mobility which MAN offers, the only brand on the market to do so. This gives certainty that, in the event of a vehicle being stuck for a long time in the garage, a replacement vehicle of the same class and body will be available.
