Western Commercial To Halt HGV Sales

MERCEDES-BENZ Trucks dealership Western Commercial will no longer sell HGVs from December due to the investment needed to continue the service, writes Chris Tindall.
In a letter to customers, the company said it was no longer sustainable to keep the truck side of business going. “We have reached a stage where for us to take the business further, meet your expectations, satisfy the requirements of the manufacturer and fully engage with the incoming generation of e-trucks, we would be required to make substantial investments in all key areas.
“We had to accept that the investments required are not sustainable and we have therefore given notice to Mercedes-Benz Trucks UK Ltd. Our truck sales franchise agreement will end on 6 December 2021.”
Western Commercial said it would continue after this date with its truck aftersales operations across all its sites.
A Mercedes-Benz Trucks spokesman said: “Discussions are ongoing about our network representation.”
Western Commercial has sites in Bellshill, Broxburn, Dundee and Glasgow.
