HINO trucks are the backbone of booming fuel delivery sector, says AF Automotive Group’s Hamdan

Al-Futtaim’s Commercial Vehicle Division delivered over 220 HINO light-duty trucks to fuel delivery operators in 2019

Ramez Hamdan, general manager, HINO, Al-Futtaim Automotive Group has described the Japanese manufacturer’s trucks as the backbone of the booming fuel delivery sector in the UAE.

His remarks come after Al-Futtaim’s Commercial Vehicle Division, the exclusive distributor of HINO trucks in the UAE, has revealed that delivered over 220 HINO light-duty trucks to fuel delivery operators in 2019.

According to the firm, HINO 300 series 714 NWB tons and 916 SWB 6 tons trucks constitute the fleet involved in the distribution of fuel to customers for CAFU, the Middle East’s first on-demand fuel delivery service app, ENOC and ADNOC, “further cementing its leading position as the preferred partner for businesses in the country, in the light and medium trucks segment.”

Ramez Hamdan, General Manager, HINO, Al-Futtaim Automotive Group added: “HINO trucks are known for their durability, versatility and famed ‘Total Support’ aftersales concept in terms of service contracts and spare parts availability, making them the trusted partner for companies.  We are very pleased to see HINO becoming the backbone of the booming fuel delivery sector. I take this opportunity to thank our partners for their trust in our trucks and confirm our commitment to deliver our dedicated aftersales Total Support solutions.”

HINO teamed up with GORICA, Transworld and CMC to conduct the customisation of the trucks for CAFU, ENOC and ADNOC respectively to ensure they fit the operational needs for each business and conform to the set safety standards in the UAE, explained Al-Futtaim Automotive Group in a statement.

“Also, as part of the ‘HINO Total Support’ concept, experts from Al-Futtaim’s Commercial Vehicle Division provided eco-driving training to drivers of fuel delivery operators, to help them optimize total cost of truck ownership and contributing to the bottom line,” it added. “These training help fleet owners improve fuel efficiency, minimise the cost of wear and tear, reduce service and maintenance costs as well as insurance premiums and decrease the risk of major road accidents.”
