Were you over-charged for your fleet of lorries?
At Milsted Langdon, we have been successful in helping a number of hauliers claim money back on lorries that were leased or bought from a number of well-known manufacturers.
Following an investigation by the European Commission, it was discovered that a number of lorry manufacturers, including MAN, Volvo/Renault, Daimler, Iveco and DAF had unlawfully colluded, for more than 14 years, to manipulate prices.
Such practices are in breach of rules which prohibit the creation of cartels and other ‘restrictive’ business practices and it has been estimated that between 1997 and 2011, around 10 million trucks were sold in the EU, with haulage clients being overcharged an average of £10,000 per vehicle.
At Milsted Langdon, our team of transport specialists have been assisting hauliers in preparing financial evidence to allow them to bring claims for compensation.
