The contract was awarded to MAN after extensively testing vehicles from a number of manufacturers, including four MAN TGS. While testing, RTG analyzed the best TCO and productivity of the bidders' trucks. "What was crucial in placing the order with MAN was the fact that the vehicles showed no technical defects of any kind after more than 200,000 kilometers continuously on the road. Further decisive factors in selecting MAN vehicles were the low fuel consumption, the good price/performance, the comfort and convenience offered the driver and the service and warranty package", says Derick Reinhardt, CEO of Reinhardt Transport Group. With an average vehicle age of 14 months, RTG works one of the most technically modern vehicle fleets in South Africa. Chrome Carriers requires expanded warranties in view of its tough operations: the drive train of the 140 TGS is covered for four years or 600,000 km, plus the vehicle overall comes with a three-year guarantee up to 450,000 km.

The drive train of the TGS 27.440 works on a MAN 440 hp D20 engine with automated MAN TipMatic gear change. This configuration with high torque at low rpm is optimal for traction in mining fields with softened ground, and is equally suitable for efficient long-haul traffic. Chrome Carriers will use the 140 TGS to transport chrome ore from mining areas in the South African uplands to the harbours in Richards Bay and Maputo. MAN is present in this region with a close-meshed service network. Chrome Carriers drivers were instructed in safe and economical driving by trainers of MAN ProfiDrive in South Africa. Fuel savings of as much as 10% are possible by an efficient driving style that is easy on material.
