Volvo Trucks recently launched a completely new range of heavy-duty trucks, including its flagship for long distance transport – the Volvo FH. Among the updates are a new driver interface, optional adaptive high beam headlights for increased safety, and improved fuel efficiency.

In addition, the I-Save version of the Volvo FH combines an extra fuel-efficient engine and advanced fuel-saving features, allowing the latest I-Save version to cut fuel costs by up to 10 percent, said Volvo Trucks. Of the 2,000 new trucks ordered by Girteka a large number will be I-Save trucks, the company added.

Girteka Logistics, based in Lithuania, has 15,000 truck drivers and 8,000 trucks, operating a large network in Europe and Russia.

The company has historically financed most of its Volvo trucks using Volvo Financial Services and the majority of the 2,000 trucks included in the new deal will follow the same structure.

Production start of Volvo Trucks’ new heavy-duty range is set for March 2021 and the trucks will be delivered to Girteka Logistics during this year.
