Iveco Defence Vehicles has signed a delivery order with the Swiss Armed Forces, represented by Armasuisse for 400 trucks to be supplied between 2017 and 2021.
The agreement was signed on May 2, 2017. This initial delivery order forms part of a frame contract for a new fleet consisting of special trucks to be delivered from 2016 through to 2022.
The frame contract was awarded to Iveco Defense Vehicles in November 2015, following two years of evaluation and practical trials with several demonstrator chassis.
This is the third frame contract between the two parties, following previous agreements in 1996 and 2006.
