An agreement between IVECO and Lannutti Group, a leader in integrated logistics, was signed at an IVECO press conference held last Wednesday in Arese, Italy. Pierre Lahutte, IVECO Brand President, Valter Lannutti, President of Lannutti, the press and the managers of the two firms attended the event.
Under the agreement, Lannutti Group will purchase 610 New Stralis in different models to cover the diverse transport needs of the various areas where the Group operates and to satisfy the increasing demand of more sustainable transport solutions, also required by the glass logistics business, one of the sectors in which the company is leader.
The supply will consist of:
. New Stralis XP model AS440S48TP IVECO Cursor 11 engine, 480 HP, equipped with HI-WAY cabin and designed to achieve maximum efficiency due to the latest systems for reducing fuel consumption;
. New Stralis XP AT440S46TP SL, equipped with an IVECO Cursor 11 engine, 460 HP, in super light version to maximise the payload;
. New Stralis AT440S46T/XP, equipped with an IVECO Cursor 11 engine, 460 HP, in tractor unit version with three axles 6x2.
. New Stralis AS440S40TP NP (Natural Power), equipped with an IVECO Cursor 9 engine, 400 HP, with dual LNG tank, able to guarantee a fuel range of up to 1,500 km.
All of the vehicles will be equipped with Michelin tyres with Michelin Solution formula, designed to support large vehicle fleets with innovative solutions for efficiency, productivity and mobility.
Pierre Lahutte, IVECO Brand President, declared: “I’m particularly pleased to see our partnership with Lannutti blossom over the years into new product developments. This is one of the most important European agreement in terms of vehicle numbers: 610 New Stralis in the XP and NP versions, both winning solutions for sustainable transport: on the one hand our highest performing vehicle in terms of fuel consumption reduction, and on the other the first natural gas vehicle suitable for long distance missions”.
In the words of Valter Lannutti, President of the company: “We’ve chosen IVECO to renew our vehicle fleet for two main reasons: the product itself and our relationship of mutual trust. A good product is the basis of our business and we’ve been able to directly test IVECO’s innovation and quality. The second reason is the partnership that historically links us to the Brand. Signing of today’s agreement is the result of this long-term relationship: we have always found in IVECO the sensitivity and willingness to find optimal solutions which make the difference for our company”.
With this agreement Lannutti confirms its ambitions as a European logistics player in search of the most innovative green technologies thanks to the profitable and consolidated partnership with IVECO, in its role as “ideal partner for sustainable transport”.
