Spedition Bartkowiak Adds Another Mercedes-Benz Actros Euro VI

Spedition Bartkowiak, a Lower Saxony-based freight forwarder, is adding a new Euro VI-compliant Mercedes-Benz Actros to its fleet.

The Actros Euro VI was chosen because it suited the corporate philosophy of Bartkowiak, who puts a premium on sustainable growth in terms of the ‘economic, social, and environmental perspective’. In the span of a few years, Spedition Bartkowiak was able to cut consumption figures of its fleet by 20 percent. A major part of this sustainability involves transitioning over to Euro VI variants for its truck… Continue Reading »

Mercedes-Benz Dubs Euro VI-Compliant Truck Line the ‘A-Team’

In a recent media article, Mercedes-Benz referred to its new Euro VI-compliant heavy-duty truck line as the ‘A-Team’, which actually started in 2011. After continued refinements and constant development, the three truck models, the Actros, Antos, and Arocs (pictured), are now fully compliant with the emissions standard. That’s something that Daimler and Mercedes-Benz Trucks is counting on to further grow its Europe-leading 23 percent market share in 2012. Whether the ‘A-Team’ refers to the fact that the names of the trucks all start with an ‘A’ or to the fictional group of soldiers of fortune featured in a Mr. T-bannered TV series in the mid-80′s and in a 2010 film… Continue Reading »
