A first for G1, who haven't had MAN's in their fleet before now, the D38's will be put to use for national linehaul work. 

"After we launched the D38 in Australia a year ago, we provided G1 with a demo model that they were very impressed with, and that led to the fleet deal," Managing Director of Penske Commercial Vehicles Kevin Dennis said.

"Over the last year, the feedback we received on the D38 has been very positive, both from owner drivers and fleet operators.

"In April we announced that we had partnered with the Marshall Group dealership in Mildura who will provide experienced specialised service support to all our customers in that region including G1.

"Penske’s approach is to always put our customers first and our wide-reaching dealership network is a key factor in achieving this."

According to G1 Logistics the D38 was chosen for its safety features, driver comfort and fuel efficiency.

"We have a fleet of around 150 trucks at the moment but as our operations have expanded, we have needed to bolster our fleet with high horsepower, heavy duty trucks and the D38 has ticked those boxes," Managing Director of GTS Freight Management Damien Matthews said.

"As we have rolled out the 10 D38s into our fleet, our drivers have provided great feedback on the trucks, particularly the lack of road noise, the soft ride making for a comfortable experience, and great fuel economy and trip times. Overall, feedback from drivers has been extremely positive.

"The level of communication between Penske and GTS has been first class throughout the entire process.

"Everyone at Penske has been very helpful in introducing my team to the D38 and getting our drivers comfortable in the new trucks."
