PacLease’s first Full Service Lease customer, Southern Stockfeeds, has now converted their entire fleet over to Full Service Lease with PacLease. Andrew Mills Branch Manager delivered a new Kenworth T409 PACCAR MX powered prime mover to the customer last week at the Laverton branch.
Southern Stockfeeds specialises in manufacturing animal feed and nutrition products for distribution to customers throughout Victoria. Their fleet now consists of 4 Kenworth T409 prime movers, all powered by the PACCAR MX-13engine. The customer has selected the PACCAR MX engine for their equipment based upon their experience of its excellent fuel efficiency, improved payload due to low TARE weight and reliability. Under the Full Service Lease arrangement PacLease manages all maintenance tracking, billing and whole of life asset management. The customer selected PacLease to manage these activities so they can focus more on their core business, not on managing trucks and maintenance.
The Laverton dealership sales and service teams, including Kurt Berry, Steve Kavanagh and Allan Kerr, were instrumental in helping to establish the Full Service Leasing business model for Sothern Stockfeeds. Based on their positive experience with Full Service Leasing through PacLease they are considering increasing the size of their private fleet to haul more of their loads to their customers.
This is the 38th Full Service Lease truck placed in-service since opening PacLease in Australia. PacLease Franchises now operate more than 125 Full Service Lease and Rental units in Australia.
