Following an invitation to tender, Renault Trucks will be delivering almost 1,000 Renault Masters to the Swiss Post Office in the course of the next three years. The first nineteen Masters by Renault Trucks have just been delivered to post office managers in Bâle (Switzerland).
Renault Trucks has just presented the keys of the first 19 Renault Masters to the Swiss Post Office, following an invitation to tender won by the French manufacturer which altogether concerns the delivery of almost 1,000 vehicles between now and 2014. "We are proud to be able to deliver such an efficient and reliable vehicle to the Swiss Post Office," stated Tarcis Berberat, Sales Director of Renault Trucks Switzerland SA, as the keys were presented to Lars Althaus, director of the Post Office's delivery platform in Bâle and Denis Brunschweiler, in charge of the Centre postal distribution region. This ceremony was also attended by Isabelle Nef from Nef Truckcenter SA.
For this contract, Renault Trucks has worked in association with the Renault Trucks Nef Truckcenter SA service point in order to design the most appropriate vehicle.
The vehicles' interior has been fitted out according to the Swiss Post Office's specifications. The seats are protected by two separate grills making it easy to access the loading area. To provide maximum security, the loading area is fitted with an anti-slip and sound absorbing floor, several lashing rings and support nets that can be easily adapted to the goods being carried. Furthermore, these Masters by Renault Trucks have a usable volume of 15 m³ as well as extra wide and extra high doors so that they can be loaded with palettes. All these vehicles are fitted with a six speed robotised gearbox which improves driving comfort when stopping and starting frequently.
The 1,000 Masters by Renault Trucks will be delivered in batches to the Swiss Post Office between now and 2014.
