BORUSAN LOJİSTİK RENEWS ITS FLEET
Borusan Lojistik has renewed its fleet with 25 MAN TGS 18.440 4x2 BLS model towing trucks to be used in domestic transportation.
The delivery of 25 MAN TGS 18.440 4x2 BLS model towing trucks was carried out with the participation of Serdar Erçal, Deputy General Manager of Borusan Lojistik and Aydın Yumrukçal, Group Manager of MAN Kamyon ve Otobüs Ticaret A.Ş. for Istanbul and Konya Branches.
Stating that they have signed a long-term agreement, Serdar Erçal pointed out that they make an average of 3,000 runs per day, managing an important volume. Erçal continued, “We carry out 15% of the 3,000 daily runs in Turkish land transportation operations with our own vehicles. We renew our vehicles every three years to ensure that our customers do not have any difficulty in transportation, for the safety of our employees in the event of an accident, and for driving comfort, which we see as a precondition for our drivers’ job satisfaction. In addition to this, we have created a great advantage in financial terms with this agreement made with Man. We will reflect this advantage onto our customers as a cost advantage.”
Noting that they have purchased a maintenance package along with the MAN towing trucks, Erçal said, “The vehicles were purchased with a comprehensive package in which MAN will provide all maintenance, including extended warranty and parts replacement, for 36 months. This will thus allow us to provide competitive prices to our customers.” On the other hand, he stated that the vehicles will be repurchased within under the MAN TopUsed project at the end of 36 months, highlighting that already knowing the resale price is very important in terms of cost control and competitiveness, allowing maintenance costs to be measured throughout 36 months.
Giving a speech during the delivery, Aydın Yumrukçal, Group Manager of MAN Kamyon ve Otobüs Ticaret A.Ş. for Istanbul and Konya Branches, pointed out that MAN vehicles are the first choice of many logistics firms, thanks to the performance they display and the quality of their parts; “We’ve had the opportunity to broaden our cooperation by being included in the domestic operations of Borusan Lojistik with this 25-vehicle project. We are happy that Borusan Lojistik chose MAN for their domestic transportation operations. We hope that our cooperation will continue to increase.”
