The Ministry of Defence has signed a £53 million deal with MAN Truck & Bus UK for the modernisation of its logistics fleet.

The project will deliver a new pallet and container loading system: 382 retrofit kits for the enhanced pallet loading system (EPLS) will be supplied and integrated into MoD’s HX trucks, which were supplied by MAN under a contract signed in 2005.

MAN’s partner Rheinmetall MAN Military Vehicles Austria (RMMV) will provide the technical solution and the EPLS, which MAN will then install on the vehicles.

Shipping and retrofitting is due for completion by the end of January 2021.

The MoD acquired 7,500 HX logistics vehicles from MAN between 2005 and 2013, and a growing demand for container transport led to the project to retrofit the flatbed vehicles with a hooklifting system.

MAN is undertaking overall project management responsibility; RMMV is building and supplying the conversion kit, with the hookloading system made by Hiab.
