MAN Delivers 440 Trucks to Saudi Arabia
Saudi Arabian food producer Almarai has ordered 240 new MAN TGS trucks from MAN Truck & Bus, for their fleet of 1290 MAN long-haul trucks. Almarai conducts the distribution of its chilled foods and dairy products for the entire Gulf region as well as Jordan and Egypt.
MAN is also supplying 200 TGS tractors with TipMatic automated gearboxes to Global Specified Transport in Saudi Arabia. The first 100 trucks of this order were handed over in July.
MAN said the TGS trucks are specially designed to meet the requirements of the Middle East regions and are configured for the climatic conditions in the heat and sand of the desert.
As a result of these increased market demands, the local MAN Truck & Bus Distributor, Haji Husein Alireza Co. (HHA) said it plans to build three new service centers in Jubail, Madinah and Khamis Mushait, as well as increasing the coverage of its mobile service fleet.
