In May, Kenworth DAF Melbourne delivered 10 new Kenworth prime movers to Auswide Transport Solutions, consisting of seven K200s, one T610, one T610SAR and an T909.
Auswide Transport Solutions director, Amrit Kankar, said, “I have always dreamed of owning the King of the Road, a big bonnet Kenworth T909!”
“When it came to making a decision on what truck to choose to purchase for our 100th truck, I could not look past the T909.”
A metallic paint was chosen for the cab and chassis and was fitted with a number of custom extras, including custom engraving, exhaust shrouds, chrome wheels, custom grill and the list goes on. The finished product presented was beyond Amrit’s expectations and has become the pride of the fleet.
Auswide Transport Solutions commenced operations in 2007 and as a result of growth and demand is now running more than 100 prime movers with 400 supporting pieces of trailing equipment in the fleet.
The handover took place on the lawns of the Kenworth DAF Melbourne dealership in Derrimut with Damian Smethurst, General Manager of PACCAR Parts, Andrew Besnard, Sales Manager, Nick Gesovski, Sales Consultant and Rick Duske, Regional Finance Manager representing the dealership and 30 of the Auswide crew who joined Amrit for the momentous occasion.
Amrit was so pleased with these vehicles he wasted no time in placing another order for a further 10 Kenworths with salesman Nick Gesovski to add to their rapidly growing fleet.
“It has been a pleasure working with Auswide Transport Solutions and we look forward to a long association with them and the Kenworth product,” said Nick.
