Scania to enter the rental business

A prime mover rental fleet featuring all Euro 5 vehicles with sleeper cabs is to be launched by Scania. Trucks will be available for short and medium term hire (up 24 months) from Scania Truck Rental as the Swedish manufacturer becomes the first truck builder to offer in-house national truck rental to the Australian trucking industry.

Beginning in Victoria the rental fleet will roll out across New South Wales and Queensland in the coming months. Customers will only need to add fuel, drivers and insurance cover.

“Our market research tells us there is a clear demand for a premium truck rental product directly from a premium truck manufacturer,” said Roger McCarthy, Scania Australia Managing Director. “Scania Truck Rental has been established many years in key markets overseas, and we are confident the concept will be attractive to many operators here in Australia. It should prove attractive to operators who are in the need for expansion of their prime mover fleets to meet peak demand, as well as those operators looking for long-term flexibility in their vehicle fleets.”
