NiDa Transport order over 200 Volvo FMX trucks

22nd August 2011 Print

NiDa Transport, South Africa has placed an order for over 200 of the latest Volvo FMX with the potential of 50 more. The trucks will be delivered during 2011.
“The trucks will be a fine tribute to our expanding transport operation. We considered a variety of alternatives in the local market, but ultimately it was the good uptime on the Volvo trucks, good parts availability and a dealer network that is well spread along the routes on which we will be operating that made us choose the Volvo brand”, says CEO for NiDa Transport, Nico Oosthuizen.
NiDa primarily services the mining industry sector in South Africa and combinations are fitted with side-tipping trailers for the coal and commodity transport applications and flat deck trailers to transport steel.
Currently NiDa is running a mixed fleet of approximately 385 vehicles, 200 of which are Volvo trucks. All the new Volvo FMX vehicles will be on maintenance contracts to ensure maximum up-time through planned and preventive servicing.
