Infrastructure services and engineering company Amey, has taken delivery of five new MAN TGE based Trunk Roads Incident Support Service (TRISS) vehicles.
The vehicles will be based across Scotland’s busiest trunk roads and motorways and will assist Transport Scotland in providing critical support and advanced information to road users.
Historically the TRISS fleet has supported and rescued thousands of stranded motorists, removed countless hazards from the road network and have helped keep traffic moving by delivering reliable minute-by-minute traffic updates.
The MAN TGE 3.180 vans have been converted to TRISS specification by vehicle conversion specialists Qi Van Systems, based in Telford.
The vehicles have been procured through Hitachi Capital (UK) PLC.
Jason Clement, Fleet Supply Chain Manager at Amey, said: “We have a great working relationship with MAN and have known their TGE International Key Account Manager, John Seddon, for a number of years.
“When we initially looked at the MAN TGE for our TRISS operation we looked at the added values that MAN offer, these being value for money, customer satisfaction and a truly dedicated 24/7 commercial vehicle focused dealer network. It was obvious that MAN’s commitment to customer service is a mirror image of what we offer our customers throughout our business.
“The in-service product demonstration that MAN offered our Scottish TRISS function helped us understand the importance of the committed and understanding relationship. What also helped was the positive feedback from the TRISS team who will be using the TGE’s on a round the clock 24/7 basis.”
