105 vehicles for waste management operations in the city of Abidjan and surrounding areas.
IVECO and its West African partner, the Moroccan Premium Group, have sealed a deal that will see them supply 105 vehicles for waste management operations in the city of Abidjan and surrounding areas.
Serving a population of some 1.7 million in the area, IVECO said the complete order includes 30 Daily, 21 Eurocargo and 54 Trakker trucks and contribute to the Ivorian government’s goal of finding a lasting solution to improve the environmental and sanitary conditions of its capital city. This is part of the country’s plan to revive Abidjan’s lustre as “the pearl of the Lagoons”, as emphasized by Ivorian Minister of Health, Environment and Sustainable Development, Madame Anne Désirée Ouloto, said the Italian vehicle maker.
Premium Group represents IVECO’s full line of commercial transport vehicles, from light all the way to heavy freight trucks, as well as its ASTRA heavy-duty trucks for quarry and construction missions. It also sells and supports the OK Trucks brand, the pre-owned vehicles guaranteed and certified by IVECO. Through the Premium Group, IVECO serves fleet owners with facilities based in Burkina Faso, Ivory Coast, Mali, Cameroon, Senegal and Togo. Additionally, its partner also sells into Central African Republic, Chad, Niger, Guinea Conakry and Benin.
Pierre Lahutte, IVECO brand president, described a renewal agreement with Premium Group as enabling the company to provide customers in the region with”the quality support they need and, consequently, ensure they can get the full benefit of the efficiency and performance of our vehicles and enjoy their low Total Cost of Ownership. The West African markets are very important for us, and this supply agreement in the Ivory Coast is testament to the trust that big operators place in IVECO for the quality of our vehicles and the service offered to our customers.”
