Renault Trucks will supply Canadian army 1500 trucks

35
The French company Renault Trucks (part of Volvo) announced a major contract with the Canadian Ministry of Defense to supply 1500 Kerax trucks (8х8), three hundred tractor units and 150-ti trucks with armored cab, the blog bmpd with reference to ccfa.fr.



The contract value is $ 500 million, except for supplies, it includes maintenance services for vehicles for 5 years. For the receipt of this contract, the companies of the Volvo group struggled with the German concerns Mercedes and Rheinmetal, as well as with the American company Oshkosh.

Formally, the contract was signed by Mack (owned by Volvo), but physically the trucks will be made in France.

For Renault Trucks, this contract is very important in terms of maintaining production volumes, as well as jobs at its French factory in Bourg-en-Bresse.

“So, in the 2014 year, the concern at its plants in France produced only 26500 trucks, while in 2008, the production volumes were almost twice as large (55400). This led to a reduction in staff - from 10000 people in 2008 to 8350 working as of April 2015, ”the French edition reported.

      Yes, even 100500 is generally parallel, and it’s not clear why we need to know how many trucks the Canadians will deliver to the Canadians.

                most of. but why should the choice fall on KAMAZ trucks, only on the basis of the success of single copies created for one specific purpose and at the same time with a large share of foreign spare parts? I think those who buy thousands of trucks look at something else: quality, availability of service, spare parts, brand, reputation, vehicle capabilities. Alas, I am sure foreigners themselves will remember "Mercedes" or "Man", and about "Kamaz" only if they recall or tell (if they do not know). That is why I think that KAMAZ has fewer competitive advantages than other manufacturers, but other parts as an indicator that KAMAZ itself cannot do very important units in trucks. here is the question, why buy a half-Mercedes with a Kamaz nameplate, if you can have a full Mercedes with a Mercedes nameplate?

              Communicated indirectly at the Kamaz Masters stable, so until the last engines there were ZMZ !!! Only after changing the regulations had to switch to Kamensa.
              Boxes, for example, yes, but there are a lot of Russian parts in Boeing.
              In general, Kamaz Master is a combat vehicle and domestic, do not say that!

                I do not pretend to be true. but I remember the transfer to Russia24 after the victory. there they talked about these machines and how they are made and a lot of foreign parts were listed there (as it seemed to me a lot, maybe this is normal). even like a chair with shock absorbers to protect the spine of the crew, not ours. here on this transfer I also judge. maybe this is no longer relevant and I'm wrong. but the main thing is that for me all the same, so that "kamaz" and "ural" do not concede the domestic market of trucks to foreigners, and all kinds of rallies are indifferent to me. win, win no matter :)

            Kamaz on a fight-constructor.
            Renault Kerax (and the last ones are the ancestors of the very successful 90's model) in life, it will put both maz and kamaz, it’s easy, Volvo and mans and Mercedes are the same. But not so easy
            ceteris paribus competitors with analogues of this truck provides good profitability.

            the difference in price of the same type of German or Swedish dump trucks, on the one hand, and the French dump truck, on the other hand, can reach 15000 euros. And if we are talking about two dozen cars, then due to the delta, you can buy two, or even three "extra" Renault Kerax.

            14 models are offered to the consumer at choice (for Russia) both in the form of a tractor and in the form of a chassis cab with 15 wheelbase options, from 3200 to 5800 mm. For the sake of completeness, I will decipher this specification: 4x2: from 3200 to 5800 mm; 4x4: from 3500 to 4500 mm; 6x4: from 3200 to 5500 mm; 6x6: from 3500 to 5000 to 8 to 4 to 4350 to 5650 to XNUMX to XNUMX to XNUMX to XNUMX to XNUMX to XNUMX to XNUMX to XNUMX to XNUMX to XNUMX to XNUMX to XNUMX to XNUMX to XNUMX to XNUMX to XNUMX to XNUMX to XNUMX to XNUMX to;
