Dubai: Momentum Logistics, a subsidiary of port operator Gulftainer, has replaced its transportation fleet with fuel-efficient Scania trucks distributed - and serviced - in the UAE by Al Shirawi Enterprises. Since December 2017, the fleet replacement drive at Momentum Logistics has witnessed delivery of 96 new Scania vehicles, including the recent purchase of 10 new P380 trucks and with another 10 due for delivery soon.
“For a company that was launched just a decade ago, we have come a long way, expanding our scale of operations from the UAE to Iraq, Saudi Arabia and the US,” said Alex Lewis, Managing Director of Momentum Logistics, which has a fleet of over 100 commercial vehicles and 240 multi-purpose trailers. “In the last ten years, we have experimented enough to know what works the best and what doesn’t. Scania was the obvious choice to initiate our fleet replacement program.”
Scania offers a range of purpose-built trucks and buses for heavy transport applications. According to Martin Roberts, Director of Transportation at Momentum Logistics, “We conducted a thorough analysis of all our operations before replacing our fleet. Scania proved to have the best value offering on a weighted scale, considering the total cost of ownership, driver training, customer support, and maintenance.”
