Maltacourt invests €3m EUR in European fleet

The job entails deliveries of liquified gas in tanker trailer volumes to Hungarian domestic and international customers across Germany, Austria, Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia Herzegovina, Serbia, Greece, Slovakia, Czech Republic, Poland and Romania, in the medical and industrial sectors. 

For this 5 + 1 year contract, Maltacourt has invested over 3 million euros in the project, including acquiring 32 specially equipped ADR, second generation EURO6 Mercedes Actros tractor units. The vehicles have onboard video recording as well as an active emergency brake assistant for ultimate safety on route. The system makes it practically impossible for a collision to happen while the truck is moving forwards. In addition to this the equipment also includes active lane assist which prohibits the vehicle from changing lanes without the drivers conscious decision to do so and a driver fatigue monitoring system, called Driver Alert.

All of these additions have huge relevance on todays congested roads and on the long journeys travelled by our drivers, and given the characteristics of the transported product, Maltacourt believed that the additional investment was essential for safety of our drivers, the public in general and our customers product. The significant investment from Maltacourt further expands our fleet, making it one of the safest, securest and greenest on the roads.The contract involves not only the transportation of the product but also the transfer of the liquified gas from the storage vessel to the tanker trailer and reverse at delivery to site. For this reason all 46 drivers employed for the operation are all highly qualified and have taken part in a rigorous Maltacourt operational safety training.

“The drivers are delighted to be part of the team of Maltacourt and have expressed their thanks for the additional training, monitoring and safety equipment introduced to the operation.” Ferenc Federer, Managing Director Maltacourt Supply Chain

The project as represents is a huge success for Maltacourt and in particular Ferenc Federer, Managing Director of Maltacourt Supply Chain ZRT, whom is responsible for the new operation and amongst others, including the current cylinder gas transportation contract which Maltacourt has operated for the same customer, over the last 3 years.
