Euro 5 Fleet
Euro 6 Trial
The road transport industry accounts for around 18% of greenhouse emissions in Australia. At South West Express, we believe that that emission control and reduction, makes good business sense, and have made significant investments in driving down our environmental footprint.
In 2008 South West Express we\’re the first transport operator in Western Australia to commence the upgrade their fleet to meet the Euro 5 emission. It was 3 years later, in 2011, that the Australian Government mandated this standard for all new trucks. This investment positioned the South West Express Metropolitan fleet of Scania prime movers as the first Euro 5 compliant Scania fleet within Western Australia. In March 2015 the fleet upgrade was completed with all prime movers 100% Euro 5 compliant.
In 2016 South West Express commenced a fleet upgrade to the Euro 6 standard. An important part of this process was to prove the suitability of the Euro 6 vehicles to Australian conditions. We have worked closely with Scania conducting a series of road trials and assessments with Scania on their Euro 6 compliant road train rated prime movers, prior to their official release into the Australian market.
This investment in the latest technology, demonstrates leadership in sustainable road transport.
