KNP ADD 22 MAN TGX's INTO FLEET
As part of the group’s continuous renewal strategy and to support future growth, KNP Logistics Group has added an additional 22 MAN TGX’s into its fleet to join the 148 already on fleet.
Voted International Truck of the Year 2021, the TGX26.470 6x2/2 GM cabs were specified with, DVS cameras, ADR kits, Anderson leads and fridges.
Paul Abbott, KNP Group Director, commented: "With safety is at the forefront of Group decisions, MAN’s optiView digital exterior mirrors/cameras, blind spot sensors and turn assist sensors were key to the decision process.
The New generation model has improved precision handling, excellent visibility and adaptive cruise control. The 470’s perform well for us across varying applications and the Enhanced Specifications tick all the boxes for both driver and operator.
By Feb 2022 the group will have 170 MAN’s on fleet, ranging from TGE Panel vans to 44 tonne long distance tractors. The aftersales support for the MAN fleet from the 8 regional dealer locations KNP utilise around the UK, was as critical as the safety enhancements to the decision process.

Neil Cox, MAN Truck & Bus said: "MAN Truck & Bus UK Ltd have been proud supply partners for nearly 7 years, with a brief of not just delivering the latest in truck technology but also to fully ensure KNP achieve maximum uptime though MAN dealers delivering repair and maintenance contracts”
