Purchase is part of the company’s expansion plans
Bahrain’s Transcontinental Shipping Company (TCS) has added five new Renault trucks to its fleet in the kingdom.
Yousif Al Rayes, CEO of TCS, said the purchase is part of the shipping firm’s development and expansion plans, according to the state-owned Bahrain News Agency. The company, established in Bahrain in 1996, recently opened a branch in Qatar, marking its first step towards a GCC-wide expansion.
Al Rayes expects shipments by sea to be stable in the current year and at the same level as last year, in spite of the tough economic climate, it was reported.
The five Renault trucks, supplied by the Bin Hindi Heavy Vehicle Company, will be used to transport merchandise around the Kingdom.
TCS plans to add five more trucks to its fleet during 2016 and use them on the route between Bahrain and Qatar.
