Food producer Almarai has ordered 240 new TGS model tractors from MAN Truck & Bus, rejuvenating their current fleet of 1,290 MAN long-haul trucks. Almarai conducts the distribution of its chilled foods and dairy products single-handedly and operates the vehicles around the clock to deliver heat-sensitive perishable goods to the entire Gulf region as well as Jordan and Egypt. The company had already ordered a major number of trucks for its fleet in 2009.

Furthermore, MAN is supplying 200 TGS tractors with TipMatic automated gearboxes to Global Specified Transport in Saudi Arabia. The first 100 trucks of this batch have already been handed over in July.

The MAN TGS trucks are specially designed to meet the requirements of the Middle East regions and are thus optimally suited for the climatic conditions in the extreme heat and sand of the desert.

As a result of increased market demands, local MAN Truck & Bus Distributor Haji Husein Alireza Co. (HHA) announced plans to build 3 new service centres in the cities Jubail, Madinah and Khamis Mushait. In this context, HHA also strengthens the coverage of its mobile service fleet.

MAN gets major order from Saudi Arabia

Almarai, the world's biggest dairy concern, orders 168 TGA-WW series trucks from MAN.

The Saudi Arabian dairy concern Almarai has ordered 168 MAN TGA-WW trucks. Of these, 141 are two-axle TGA 19.440 semitrailer tractors with L-cabs and D26 engines. The trucks will be delivered in February 2009. The other 27 trucks that make up this order are two-axle TGA 18.480 semitrailer tractors. The customer has already been operating these since October 2008. The MAN trucks of the TGA-WW series are specially designed to meet the requirements of the Middle East regions and are thus optimally suited for the climatic conditions in the extreme heat and sand of the desert.

Almarai operates the vehicles around the clock to deliver heat-sensitive perishable goods to the entire Gulf region as well as Jordan and Egypt. The reliability and efficiency of the vehicles have highest priority for the customer. The company is one of MAN's biggest customers in the Arabian Peninsula and currently has a fleet of over 360 MAN vehicles. In fiscal 2007, Almarai recorded sales of almost eight billion euros in its four fields of business: fresh dairy, long-life dairy, fruit juice, and cheese & butter, making it the biggest dairy concern in the world.
