The trucks, based at Polmadie, will be deployed on the main trunk roads in the city and Central Belt and transport bosses have promised a hi-tech response when severe weather starts to bite.
The gritters and spreaders will have mobile sensors fitted to record up to the minute weather conditions and relay the information back to the control room. It will then be made immediately available to the public through the internet and social media, such as Twitter, so drivers can keep up to date with changing conditions.
Helping the new gritters will be another 14 new 'super gritters', which can spread as much as twice the normal load, meaning they can cover more roads before needing to return to the depot to re-stock.
Scottish Transport Minister Keith Brown said there would be a better coordinated approach between the Met Office and the roads response team thanks to a new national control centre.
He was visiting the new centre in South Queensferry, West Lothian, today to see the preparations for wintry conditions.
Mr Brown said: "Our new national control centre means our response to major incidents, such as severe storms, will be better coordinated under one roof. Experts from all across the transport network will be working alongside each other.
"I am pleased we now have a dedicated member of staff from the Met Office in place and that will mean the flow of information between our organisations gets even better."
He said the new technology would ensure a swift response to road conditions and also provide information to the public to plan journeys.
TranServ covers the operation for the south west of Scotland, which includes the busiest motorways, the M8, M74 and M73.
Russell Rennie, contract director for Scotland TranServ, said: "We have been preparing for winter since commencement of the 4G contract in April.
"Having invested more than £3 million in winter plant alone we are now operating the latest in gritting technology in south west Scotland."
Last winter, the Met Office issued 169 severe weather warnings for Scotland.
