Road Transport fleet upgraded with MAN utility trucks

On Tuesday of last week, March 8th, the works yard of the Transportation Division's Road Transport operation witnessed a modest ceremony. U. S. Steel Kosice President David J. Rintoul symbolically presented the drivers with the keys to four new TGS-series MAN utility trucks. Three MAN TGS 41.480-8x8 tipper trucks and one MAN TGS 33.540-6x4 tractor unit were recently delivered to the Company. All of these vehicles, together with the 29-ton trailer which the operation has had at its disposal since December of last year, are to serve primarily for taking detritus and slag from the Steel Plants Division to the dry dump, and for carrying outsize and heavy loads. After the necessary training of the drivers, the new vehicles were brought directly into operation.
