Lenta Expands its Own Fleet to Include KAMAZ Compass Trucks

St Petersburg, Russia, 14 November 2022: Lenta (MOEX: LENT, LSE: LNTA), one of the largest multi-format retail chains in Russia, has acquired 22 medium-duty KAMAZ Compass 12 trucks.

The new 5-tonne trucks are first of its brand in Lenta’s fleet. With the trucks already provided by Utkonos, Lenta will now have more than 100 light- and medium-duty vehicles.

The Company plans to use them instead of leased transport to deliver goods to small-format stores.

KAMAZ introduced the Compass product family as part of its efforts to tap into the market for medium-duty trucks. The Compass 12 complies with modern standards for comfort, efficiency and safety and comes with a Cummins ISF3.8 or ISF4.5, a straight four-cylinder diesel engine for lower fuel consumption, as well as a 6-speed manual Fast Gear transmission.

Igor Ovsienko, Lenta’s Chief Supply Chain Officer, commented:

“Our goal is to balance out the amount of trucks of varied capacity. This will help the Company boost its operating efficiency and ensure a high level of on-shelf availability at small formats. After foreign distributors quit the Russian market, it did not take much time for us to find a local replacement for European trucks.”
