Scania reaches 1000th live contract in Australia

The milestone of 1000 live maintenance and repair contracts has been reached by Scania in Australia. The contract which hit the magic number was for a new vehicle purchased by Victorian logistics company Ryans Group.

“Ryans values the Scania Maintenance and Repair Programme because we have an agreed fixed monthly cost that gives us peace-of-mind and allows us to focus on our core business,” said Graham Ryan, Managing Director of Ryans Group. “We know the vehicle will be well looked after by Scania and will remain in perfect condition.”

The cover can extend to trailers and refrigeration units, which can be serviced and looked after by the same Scania branch that services and repairs the prime mover. The programmes have been sold to a huge variety of Scania customers, from high-profile national fleets to statewide distribution operators to smaller single vehicle owner/drivers. The entire Scania Truck Rental fleet is also on Maintenance and Repair contracts.

“This is a big achievement for Scania,” said Sean Corby, National Services Sales Manager for Scania Australia. “The high level of interest and take-up in our programmes reflect their many benefits for customers. The key benefits are easy to quantify; low risk, access to excellent quality service and parts at our branches and dealers, increased uptime, more efficient vehicles, low administration and a known fixed monthly cost. Aside from fuel and insurance, all running costs can be covered.

“Our Maintenance and Repair Programmes can be tailored to individual client requirements based on their use profile, their actual vehicles, or the vehicle combinations they are using. One of our unique selling propositions is that we have contracts that provide our customers with peace-of-mind knowing that if a Scania part fails through fair wear and tear then we’ll replace it.

“We offer a competitive pricing structure, no ‘caps’ on components such as clutch or brake replacements, and there are no exit fees or long notice periods so our customers are not locked in.”
