Defences have been received in the first action commenced by Edwin Coe and that claim has now been transferred to the Competition Appeals Tribunal in London.

The defendants have admitted liability for the cartel. The quantification of damages flowing from the cartel remains in dispute and will be the core of the litigation process in front of the Tribunal.


Edwin Coe, the UK’s leading group action litigation firm, is leading a group action on behalf of claimants seeking damages from truck manufacturers. The claims arise out of an investigation and findings by the European Commission that six different truck manufacturers were guilty of price fixing over a 14 year period. As a result of the cartel, any business which purchased, leased or outsourced trucks weighing six tonnes or more between 1997 and 2012 is likely to have overpaid for its vehicles

If you bought, leased or outsourced trucks weighing 6 tonnes or more, here or in Europe, during the cartel period, you will have a claim. Edwin Coe has funding and insurance in place, which means you can pursue your claim without cost or risk.

Our trucks cartel team is able to advise on all aspects of the claim. Please contact Zahira Hussain for more information.
