WOODFORD Ve­hi­cle Rentals said yes­ter­day that it had en­tered into a three-year con­tract worth R45 mil­lion with Soft­bev as Soft­bev aimed at ex­pand­ing its dis­tri­bu­tion net­work in the Gaut­eng re­gion. Owais Sule­man, the man­ag­ing di­rec­tor of Woodford, said the com­pany was pleased to get the thumbs up from Soft­bev to dis­trib­ute its prod­ucts in Gaut­eng. “We feel we’re the per­fect fit for a com­pany that has sim­i­lar val­ues and am­bi­tions and will en­deav­our to ser­vice Soft­bev with the same pas­sion and com­mit­ment we have in the past,” Sule­man said. Soft­bev, which spe­cialises in soft drinks such as Pepsi, Cooee and Jive al­ready had Woodford dis­tribut­ing its prod­ucts in KwaZulu-Na­tal and the Eastern Capes. Un­der the terms of this new agree­ment, Woodford will dis­trib­ute Soft­bev’s prod­ucts us­ing a fleet of 36-ton Nis­san UHD su­per links. Woodford said it cur­rently had a fleet of 145 com­mer­cial ve­hi­cles, rang­ing from 1 to 36-ton ve­hi­cles. Sule­man said the com­pany looked for­ward to grow­ing its re­la­tion­ship with Soft­bev in the years ahead. “Our main pri­or­ity is to keep our clients’ goods mov­ing with as lit­tle has­sle as pos­si­ble. We will han­dle any is­sues or sit­u­a­tions that may arise, and will get your goods to its des­ti­na­tion in good time.”
