Aiming to lift the benchmark with each new vehicle that joins its fleet, TNT Australia has made it its mission to acquire some of the most advanced equipment in the transport and logistics sector. Long-time affiliate Alltruck Bodies has helped the fleet giant to meet those targets since day one.
According to TNT, it’s one thing to get the best available equipment on the market, but the secret to success is maintaining long-term relationships with its key suppliers. “It’s easy to do business with a company that knows exactly what you want,” says TNT National Fleet and Equipment Manager, Kurt Grossrieder.
“When you reach this particular juncture in a partnership, you know it’s going to last the distance. Instead of having to go through the whole process again, Alltruck Bodies knows exactly what our fleet requirements are, so when we call through it really comes down to how soon they can get the units to us.”
In 2014, TNT Australia embarked on an annual replacement program, positioning itself for further growth in Australia’s express parcel market with the replacement of 207 brand-new rigids all designed and built by Alltruck Bodies, making it the largest order ever made from the Dandenong-based body builder.
