Chinese Company Relies On Scania Trucks For On-Time Delivery Of Perishable Goods

China-based Xiamen Boshan Food Co recently added four Scania PGR series and five new generation G-series trucks to its fleet. The company specializes in frozen food transport and cold chain logistics, so it requires reliable vehicles that can deliver perishable products on time. “Cold chain transportation has high demands for the performance and stability of vehicle equipment,” says Mingyi Ke, warehouse and logistics manager at Boshan Food. “Using other brands or secondhand equipment can result in high failure rates and high maintenance costs, which will prevent us from meeting the customers’ transportation needs.”

Fuel Efficiency & Fleet Management

Fuel efficiency is a major selling point for Boshan Food because its longest route is 1,250 kilometres and takes 15 hours to complete. Depending on the region of operation, the company’s Scania G 450 6x2 trucks have an average fuel consumption of between 25 and 28 litres per 100 kilometres, and its PGR series trucks average between 28 and 30 litres. Fleet management features are also a plus as each of the truck has seven cameras that allow the company to monitor its drivers and their cargo. Thanks to the performance of these models, the company plans to purchase 10 new Scania trucks each year.

More On The Scania G-Series

Scania G-series trucks are available with day cabs, short cabs, and low, normal, or highline sleeper cabs. You have a choice of either 9- or 13-litre Euro 6 engines that produce between 280 and 500 horsepower and from 1,400 to 2,550 newton metres of torque. Transmission options include eight-speed range-change and 12-speed range-splitter gearboxes. G-series models are also available with single or tandem driven rear axles and come in a variety of axle configurations ranging from 4x2 to 10x4*6.

You will find a hundreds of used Scania trucks for sale at TruckLocator, including a large selection of G-series models.
