Logictics firm SP Training has given two of its partners the opportunity to name a pair new trucks added to its fleet of vehicles. It offered two of its clients, Yodel and Scania, the opportunity to christen the Scania G 250 18-tonne vehicles with names based on education, training or knowledge to fit with the company’s brand. The training team at national parcel carrier Yodel named its vehicle Athena Skylar after ‘Athena’ – the Greek goddess of wisdom, and ‘Skylar’ the Irish name meaning ‘the learned one’.

Craig Laughton, national operations training manager at Yodel, said: “We’re delighted to have been offered the chance to name one of the new, bespoke trucks that SP Training has recently added to its fleet. The service that SP Training provides Yodel with is really important for our own training programmes, and the continued development of our drivers.” Meanwhile Scania selected current pop singer Meghan Trainor to adorn the front of its vehicle.

Matthew Watson, general manager of Scania Optimise Services, said: “SP Training procuring new Scania vehicles was a key factor in our collaboration to deliver nationwide training programmes, including apprenticeships, for our customers.”

He described being given the chance to name a truck as “an honour”
