All the units handed over during the ceremony that took place on June 8th in Dammam are IVECO S-Way AT440S47T 4×2 truck tractors. These trucks will be locally assembled at the Arabian Auto Agency Riyadh facility and will join the ARASCO fleet for the task of hauling chicken feed in bulk carrier semitrailers.
