The A15 is the main motorway running east from Rotterdam, serving as a transit route for trucks heading into Germany and further north. Scandinavian-registered trucks have largely been replaced by Eastern European trucks on international transport, so it is always nice to see a Norwegian, Swedish or Danish truck further south.

Paul O’Callaghan met Mariusz Selke, a Polish-born trucker driving for Sehested Transport, which has two bases in Denmark – Fredericia and Herning – offering a wide variety of transport services from local distribution with vans to specialist movements utilising low-bed trailers for oversize loads.

Mariusz, who has been a driver for most of his life, was born in the south of Poland but now lives further north in the country with his wife and two teenage sons. The former bodybuilder says he still loves his job and is grateful to have an understanding wife who allows him to follow his passion. He was full of praise for his new Volvo FH460 with its low-ride chassis, matched to a skeletal trailer that keeps the overall height at 4m, essential for low bridges in Holland. His destination was Denmark, with two 20ft containers he had collected in Europoort, Rotterdam. Apart from heavy traffic, the beaming Mariusz said there was nothing he disliked about his job.
