7 Days in Dubai - - BUSINESS -

Daim­ler Com­mer­cial Ve­hi­cles MENA FZE and Mercedes-Benz Trucks said they have sold their 100,000th Mercedes-Benz Ac­tros in the Mid­dle East and in North Africa (MENA). A cel­e­bra­tion of the mile­stone was held at the re­gional cen­tre of Daim­ler Com­mer­cial Ve­hi­cles MENA in Jebel Ali, Dubai, where the truck was cer­e­mo­ni­ally handed over to the cus­tomer, who is from Dam­mam in Saudi Ara­bia. Dr Wolf­gang Bern­hard, a mem­ber of the board of man­age­ment of Daim­ler AG and Head of Daim­ler Trucks and Buses, said: “Our Ac­tros is the most suc­cess­ful heavy-duty truck in the world. “About ev­ery 10th truck has been de­liv­ered to the Mid­dle East and North Africa – this un­der­lines the im­por­tance of this re­gion for Mercedes-Benz Trucks.” Saudi Ara­bia is the core mar­ket in the MENA re­gion for Mercedes-Benz Trucks, with nearly 44,000 ve­hi­cles hav­ing been de­liv­ered since 1997. Roland Sch­nei­der, Pres­i­dent and CEO of the Daim­ler Com­mer­cial Ve­hi­cles Re­gional Cen­tre, said: “This mile­stone makes us proud and truly en­cour­ages us to con­tinue de­liv­er­ing high-qual­ity prod­ucts and cus­tomer ser­vices across the re­gion.”
