New MAN TGE to deliver goods for Rimi online shop

10.12.2019

Rimi Latvia Ltd, one of Latvia’s leading food and consumer goods retailers, has concluded an agreement for the purchase of new MAN TGE vans with Avar Auto Ltd, the official dealer of MAN Truck & Bus SE in Latvia. These TGE vans will be used to deliver products to customers who order from RIMI online.

The new TGE vans stand out with their unique Polyven isothermal insulation and Carrier cooling system, providing a broad range of temperatures. This high-quality equipment makes it possible to transport various foods without harming their natural properties. This includes fruits, vegetables, dairy and meat products, as well as frozen foods, which are currently some of the most popular product groups sold by the RIMI online shop.

The TGE vans bought by Rimi Latvia are equipped with all the latest technologies: rear-view cameras, parking sensors, colour display, LED lighting in the cargo compartment and other systems necessary to makes sure that deliveries are made on time, that the driver is comfortable, and that clients can be easily reached. The emergency braking support system installed in the basic version of the van improves safety and monitors other vehicles driving ahead of it: the system warns the driver if the distance is too short, and automatically brakes to avoid collisions with the vehicle in front of the van.

 ‘We are happy to see that a company as important for Latvia’s economy as SIA Rimi Latvia recognises the advantages of the MAN TGE van. TGE is perfectly in line with the latest trends in this vehicle segment. Even its basic version includes modern equipment and safety systems that, in combination with optional body types and customer-friendly service working hours, attract companies in various industries. Be it logistics, construction, wholesale trade or forestry, Avar Auto will find the best solution for every field of business thanks to its broad range of commercial vehicles with a full weight of 3 to 44 tonnes,’ stated SIA Avar Auto board member Ilvija Veite.

TGE is provided with a five-year manufacturer warranty and two years of mobility warranty (including roadside assistance). The price of a TGE van is EUR 22,000 (without VAT), or more, depending on the equipment package.
