Allied Transport expands Volvo truck fleet
Allied Transport Establishment has contracted FAMCO (Al-Futtaim Auto and Machinery Company) to supply 30 Volvo trucks for its operations in the United Arab Emirates.
The company, which selected the Volvo FH400 model with I-shift transmission technology, received the first vehicles from the order during a recent ceremony at the FAMCO headquarters in Dubai.
"Our fleet currently includes eight Volvo trucks and we have found these vehicles to be very reliable. With the addition of the latest Volvo I-Shift trucks, we will be able to achieve our objectives with much better economy and improved efficiency," said Ali Beyat, managing director of Allied Transport.
"The primary reason for choosing these vehicles was Volvo's superior quality and reliability, supported by FAMCO's reputation for after-sales service," he added.
Allied Transport is now planning to provide DHL with the vehicles to boost the courier company's fleet network in the Middle East and support the recent increase in demand for express deliveries in the region.
"This order is part of our five-year strategy with DHL," said Beyat. "We anticipate the supply of over 500 trucks for DHL's requirements over this period time. The vehicles will be used to meet the growing demand for the company's express service across the GCC and Levant countries and North America."
