Al Masaood Commercial Vehicles & Equipment (CV&E) has won the award for Best Dealer in the MEENA region during the UD Trucks MEENA Partnership Conference held in Japan.
The sole dealer for UD Trucks in Abu Dhabi was participating at the conference held alongside the UD Trucks Global Conference in Tokyo from November 6 to 9, which saw the participation of over 250 senior executives representing UD Trucks’ authorised dealers worldwide.
The conference was an opportunity for UD Trucks to align operators with the brand’s future plans and product launches, shedding light on the strategic outlook of the trucking industry.
Innovation and sustainability emerged as the two key pillars and driving forces for the industry’s evolution, with a focus on progressive advancements in telematics, collaborative operating models, and sustainable transportation.
Much like other segments in mobility, the trucking sector is increasingly focusing on service excellence and customer satisfaction in the aftersales market, said Al Masaood CV&E, adding that the firm is “consistently embracing growth and adapting to the needs of the market” and “has actively adopted this approach over the past several years.”
Success stories from across UD Truck’s dealers were highlighted at a conference. Al Masaood join representatives from South Africa and Thailand, and presented its efforts in acquiring waste management contracts and outperforming competitors.
Al Masaood CV&E, in collaboration with UD Trucks has recently secured a large stake in the waste management sector and plans to upgrade aftersales operations and spare parts offerings.
Further highlighting the dedication and excellence of the Al Masaood CV&E team, was yet another award, presented to a member of the Parts Team. Mohamed Fouda, who has been at Al Masaood for the past four years and has generated a substantial increase in parts sales, won the UD MEENA ‘Best Parts Sales Award.’

Seeing our team’s hard work and commitment recognized on a global stage is a testament to us as an organization – always aiming for excellence through innovation and sustainability in the trucking industry.
