Switzerland Orders 400 Iveco Trucks

First Delivery Under Third Framework Contract with Swiss Armed Forces

Iveco Defence Vehicles has won an order from the Swiss armed Forces for 400 trucks, scheduled for delivery 2017-2021. This initial delivery order forms part of a framework contract for a new fleet of specialised vehicles signed in November 2015 and scheduled for delivery 2016-2022 – the third such contract between the two parties since 1996.

The awarding of this contract is yet another important milestone in our nearly 30-year collaboration”, Martin Sonderegger, Swiss National Armaments Director, commented. Iveco will provide ongoing support, project management and engineering services to the Swiss Armed Forces in close partnership with Iveco Switzerland.

As with previous contracts, vehicle drive configurations will comprise a range of variants, including 4×2, 4×4, 6×2, 6×6, 8×6 and 8×8 vehicles from the new STRALIS and TRAKKER ranges, which will be supplied with a range of different equipment, some with protected cabins. The high level of technology fitted in the vehicles, together with the extended use of commercial off-the-shelf components are fundamental to ensuring the required safety and operability of the fleet. All vehicles will be fully-compliant with Euro 6 emissions regulations and fit for Single-Fuel-Operation.

Projecting and producing tailor-made vehicles adapted to the specific needs of our customers is always an interesting challenge for us,” Vincenzo Giannelli, President & CEO of Iveco Defence Vehicles, explained. “This latest frame contract bid provided us with an excellent opportunity to improve innovation and research for a new generation of trucks.
