Recommended Posts

Press Release / May 25, 2015

Leading in the transport of beverages with a 46 percent market share, Volkswagen commercial trucks remain the number one favorite with Coca-Cola bottlers both in Brazil and abroad.

CVI Refrigerantes, which operates in the central, western and northern border of Rio Grande do Sul, has just added 14 Volkswagen trucks including twelve Worker Series model 17.190s for urban deliveries, and two Constellation Series model 24.280s for inter-city distribution, all equipped with Facchini* custom beverage bodies.

The trucks were delivered by Volkswagen truck distributor Pampero Trucks and Buses, located in Santa Maria. The trucks are already in service supplying over 16,000 Coca-Cola retailers around the Rio Grande do Sul.

In deciding to purchase additional Volkswagen brand trucks, CVI Refrigerantes transport director Breno Jacobi took into account Volkswagen’s financing program, advanced design, low fuel consumption and high up-time track record.

"The superior customer service and the partnership with Pampero Trucks over the last ten years were also important items in the decision process," says Jacobi.

Currently, 61 percent of CVI’s fleet is composed of the Volkswagen brand trucks.

Success also abroad

In the Dominican Republic, Coca-Cola bottler Bepensa, recently added fifteen more Volkswagen Worker Series model 9.150 to its fleet. Equipped with an eight pallet capacity beverage bodies, the trucks, are now distributing Coca-Cola in the Caribbean country.
