Mercedes-Benz Trucks, an internationally renowned brand whose repute is entrenched in being a pioneer of ground-breaking trucks, recently handed over 14 Mercedes-Benz Actros units to Aspen Logistics. The latest delivery, which took place at an exclusive handover ceremony serves as the renewal of a thriving relationship between these two associates. For decades now, Aspen Logistics has been using Mercedes-Benz trucks which have not only contributed to the optimal experience and profitability but have carved themselves an important place in their eminent business.
Sujen Padayatchi, Managing Director: Aspen Logistics, shed some light on the company’s recent purchase: “I am pleased that as Aspen Logistics we are once again extending on our partnership with Mercedes-Benz Trucks after having been proud owners of their fleet for a number of years. From the beginning, we have always been a family business that believes in the Mercedes-Benz Trucks brand, simply because we get a basket of advantages that are a good fit for our business. They offer us uncompromised quality, unmatched reliability, and cutting-edge technology which plays a vital role in the delivery of services and products”.
Padayatchi further adds: “When it comes to customer service and maintenance, Mercedes-Benz Trucks is certainly a cut above, thanks to its dealership McCarthy Kunene Commercial Vehicles for their superb support. We look forward to seeing how these vehicles are going to perform in our operation. As we embark into the future, we remain loyal to the brand to move our business forward and would definitely recommend it to my fellow FMCG suppliers who are looking into expanding their fleet.
