Welcome Home A. Hingley (Transport) Ltd
It’s a big welcome back to Scania for A. Hingley (Transport) Ltd of Brierley Hill, who have just placed into service 5 new Scania G420LA6x2/2MNAH highline tractors. All the vehicles have been supplied on contract hire and will be maintained at our Kingswinford depot.
This order is a major milestone for both the company and Keltruck’s relationship with them, as the vehicles will be the first Scania trucks they have in service since 1994. But A Hingley’s relationship with Scania goes back generations as they purchased the first Scania to be imported into the uk (Pictured here on the right).
Their new purchase of 5 Scania’s shows the confidence A. Hingley have in Keltruck and the Scania product and services, Ray Hingley Snr explains the move back to Scania products;
“For our operation, Scania have got this truck completely right, low entry cabs which suit our drivers, not to mention the ability to get a 30t pay load with our new light weight trailer purpose built by our own manufacturing operation. Yes, I think the price of the truck, matches the standard.”
Although the product is often the main reason for customers returning to the Scania brand, the backup that comes with that product is also paramount to a hauliers operation. This deal is no exception as Ray Snr comments,
“Our relationship with Keltruck goes back many years, from Sales through to service, I know if I ask for something they deliver. They go out of their way to work with us.”
A. Hingley Transport are one of the largest and oldest dedicated steel hauliers in the UK carrying in excess of a million tonnes of steel a year for its customers . They have been established since 1960 and operate out of two locations with the head office in Brierley Hill, West Midlands.
