Scania takes to the road to give back to #TransportHeroes

May 15, 2020
Scania (Great Britain) Limited is sending out its hospitality trailer to serve complimentary refreshments to the truck drivers (#TransportHeroes) who are helping to keep the UK moving.

The Scania hospitality trailer A full menu of refreshments will be on offer, including tea, a range of coffees – Americano, cappuccino, latte, and espresso – hot chocolate, Scania branded water cartons and Scania chocolate bars.  Open to all drivers, the tour begins this Friday, 15 May, and will visit a number of Distribution Centres around the country. Scania says it will continue to make the trailer available to truckers for as long as it is considered necessary and resources allow.

Stacey Llewellyn-Price, Scania's Events Manager said, "With the majority of truckstops, cafés and roadside pull-ins closed around the UK, the simple matter of obtaining refreshments has become a nigh-on impossible challenge for the nation's transport heroes. So to help, and to say thank you for all the vital and essential work they are doing, we thought we would transform our hospitality trailer into a free, mobile café, while adhering to the government’s social distancing policy.”

"Many drivers will already be familiar with the trailer as it normally visits many truck shows and events around the country every year.  But 2020 is different, of course, so we're doing what we can and now look forward to welcoming as many drivers to enjoy a socially-distanced refreshment break with us as soon as possible – so if you see us at a Distribution Centre you are visiting, do drop in and see us!”

"I would also like to say that we are keen to add more venues to our tour, so if anyone out there can suggest a suitable location for us to visit, we'd be delighted to hear from you – just e-mail me at stacey.llewellyn.price@scania.com."
