Velocity opens Daimler account with huge Goldstar Transport order

Velocity opens Daimler account with huge Goldstar Transport order

Perth-based Goldstar Transport has taken delivery of the first batch  of commercial vehicles in an order of 50 new Mercedes-Benz units it  recently placed.
The order marks the first major delivery for Velocity Vehicle Group,  the US headquartered dealer group that acquired the Eager’s Daimler  Truck business earlier in the month.

Part of a metropolitan distribution contract newly awarded to  Goldstar Transport in Perth, the Mercedes-Benz Actros vehicles are a  combination of Euro 6-rated 2643 and 2646 6x4s for single trailer  ambient and refrigerated freight ferrying into non-regional retail  sites.
In Australia it represents the first in the books for the Velocity Vehicle Group.

Goldstar Transport Managing Director Sean Carren said the MP5 package  and the Velocity team’s ability to deliver several dozen units in such a  short space of time made it a compelling offer.
“Aside from being a solid piece of equipment, it’s a best-in-class  vehicle and the driver training package included made it an easy  decision to make,” he said.

“All of our requirements were met pertaining to timing, schedules, technology and fuel efficiency,” he said.
“The people at Velocity and Mercedes-Benz involved in this deal were  the ones that made it happen. We like the efficiencies and safety  benefits these vehicles bring to our fleet, but ultimately we buy trucks  from people. They make these partnerships possible.”
