ALE has significantly increased their overall transportation offering with the purchase of eight new Iveco Trakker trucks for use in Argentina and Chile.
The new trucks have been delivered to the regional base in Argentina, to be used across Argentina and Chile. These new trucks will be added to the current fleet of enhanced transportation equipment, such as conventional, semi-trailers and extendables, as part of the new transportation division. This division will be based in the regional head office in Argentina and will enable ALE to cater for their client’s transportation requirements.
“We wanted to increase our transport capabilities as we often have to negotiate terrain that has unprepared roads. The decision was made to purchase these trucks because of their off-road characteristics. This makes them particularly suitable for the region’s roads and the specific routes we take,” explained Walter Rago, General Manager of ALE’s Argentina branch.
“Their sturdy features, including the chassis, suspension and engine capabilities, will help when negotiating the difficult Patagonian roads. Along with the new division, the trucks will be used to strengthen ALE’s service offering across the region and their presence in the region’s wind energy market specifically.”
The new Iveco Trakkers are the latest addition to ALE’s South American transportation fleet, which includes 42 axle lines of conventional trailer and two extendable semi-trailers. SOURCE: ALE
