Renault Trucks has been reselected following an invitation to submit tenders issued by the UGAP (Central Public Purchasing Agency) for supplying local authorities and public departments with commercial vehicles. The manufacturer will continue to feature in the public purchasing agency’s general catalogue until 2019. Renault Trucks is the sole brand to be listed for all ranges of vehicles from 3.5 - 32 tonnes.
Renault Trucks has been featured in the UGAP (Central Public Purchasing Agency) catalogue for local authorities and government departments for several years. This body has just shown its ongoing confidence in Renault Trucks by extending its listing in the catalogue from 2016-2019. Renault Trucks is the only automotive manufacturer to be represented in each section of the invitation to tender. Renault Trucks vehicles therefore feature in three distinct categories: from 3.5 t to 7.4 t, from 7.5 t to 18 t and finally over 19 t. The vehicles concerned are the Renault Master and Maxity, Renault Trucks D, D WIDE, D Access, and the Renault Trucks T, C and K.
“It’s the quality of workmanship our teams have put in over the last few years which has enabled Renault Trucks to once again be well placed in the results of the latest UGAP invitation to tender,” states Philippe Gorjux, Commercial Director Renault Trucks France. “This renewal gives us access to a potential market of over 600 vehicles a year. It’s now up to us to convince actors in the public sector to choose our trucks on the basis of our network and service quality.”
