First 77 MAN TGX for METRO LOGISTICS Germany
TGX impresses with its low fuel consumption in field tests
In addition to the low consumption that convinced METRO LOGISTICS over the course of a four-week field test, the low TCO (Total Cost of Ownership) was also an especially significant factor in the awarding of the contract.
The Euro 6 vehicles are equipped with a safety package comprising an emergency braking assistant (EBA), a lane guard system (LGS) and an adaptive cruise control (ACC). The MAN Air Pressure Management system contributes to fuel savings by reducing the accessory power output of the engine. The trucks are fitted with MAN TeleMatics to give a more efficient overview of consumption values.
Drivers' needs are met by the comprehensive comfort package with the MAN TipMatic automatic gearbox, Intarder and air-sprung and airconditioned seats with lumbar support. Drivers will also be trained to drive economically in an MAN ProfiDrive training course.
The MAN TGX trucks will support METRO LOGISTICS Germany GmbH at all of its various storage locations across Germany. The company fleet currently encompasses around 150 vehicles.
