This engine, the Turbo Compound,
has very good fuel consumption.
For a 13-liter engine,
a fuel consumption of 24-25 L/100 km
is very difficult to achieve.
I think it will be hard
to beat this rate.

We transport all kinds of goods.
Lots for the automotive industry,
for all kinds of services,
pharmaceutical,
clients like Everline,
Bimbo, IKEA…
With current prices,
fuel consumption is extremely important.
It’s a great concern,
because margins are very low.
So, that’s why
we’re using these vehicles.
It’s important to adapt the engine
and the type of truck to the cargo.
By not carrying too much weight,
we’ve managed to reduce consumption,
and we’ve also been able
to extend the life of the trucks.
This is a family business.
We are the owners.
I’m responsible for the fleet
and for purchasing,
and also for staffing to some extent.
