Popular Post kscarbel2 Posted July 12, 2018 Popular Post Share Posted July 12, 2018 Scania Group Press Release / July 8, 2018 It was one of the most exotic and exciting adventures in the history of transport: a round-trip of more than 18,000 km between Norway and the Persian Gulf. In the late 1960s and into the 70s, a few daring men drove what became legendary truck routes – the Bandar Abbas Express and the Dubai Road Express, transporting parts to ships stuck in the Gulf due to conflict and unrest in the Middle East. From snow-covered mountain passes to the scorching desert heat, it was a small band of intrepid drivers that chose to venture into the unknown, driving across unpaved desert and relying at times on handmade maps that they charted out through the years. Revisiting the 1976 Dubai Road Express film produced for Scania, we take a trip down memory lane with some of these brave and now legendary truck drivers, looking back at a unique moment in the history of trucking. This is the story of a handful of tough, groundbreaking drivers behind the wheel of some of the most reliable trucks ever made; vehicles that served as their trusted companions, transporting them thousands of kilometres from home. . 2 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
