Scania has received what is described as one of its single largest orders in Europe, which combines its largest order for battery-electric trucks to date.

The order comes from a consortium of UK-based companies: Culina Group; WS Group; and AW Jenkinson Group. As for the order itself, this covers the purchase of 2,500 trucks which will be delivered over the next 12 months.

The deal includes models using the latest generation of 13-litre Super drivetrains, plus 100 battery-electric 4x2 tractor units. These will be some of the first BE Scania models to drive on UK roads.

Christian Levin, Scania CEO, said: “Scania has had a close and successful relationship with Culina Group, WS Group and AW Jenkinson Group for many years. This is a significant deal that marks a milestone on our continued journey towards sustainable transport.”

William Stobart, deputy CEO at Culina Group, said: “On behalf of the consortium, we are very pleased to be able to renew our agreement.

“It’s been a difficult time for OEMs with global supply issues, but Scania has worked closely with us over the past two years to minimise the impact for both parties. This is testament to the true partnership between the businesses.”
