United Distribution and Transport Services takes delivery of 18 Euro 5 trucks

UD Trucks Southern Africa (UDTSA), a locally renowned Japanese manufacturer of high-quality products further renewed its partnership with its decades-long standing customer, United Distribution and Transport Services. This is following a substantial delivery of 18 new trucks since the start of the new year, with the last batch of 10 distinctively branded Quester Euro 5 truck tractors successfully delivered this month.

The new fleet expands United’s existing fleet which comprises 90% of UD Trucks.  Providing peace of mind and reliability to United Distribution and Transport Services with this purchase is the all-inclusive UD Trust Ultimate 5-Year maintenance plan which offers unparalleled benefits on the Quester, Quon, and Croner models.

Aaron Chetty, Managing Director, United Distribution and Transport Services weighs in on the new fleet and thriving partnership: “As United Distribution and Transport Services we have been loyal to the UD Trucks brand for many years, and we are confident to say that they have become a vital force in the success of our company. The new fleet offers us uncompromised quality, cutting-edge technology, unmatched reliability, uptime, and this is what makes us keep coming back to the brand. The CMH Commercial UD Trucks dealership has once again proven to us why they remain our preferred dealership, with their superior support and customer service. We excited about further expanding our footprint with the new trucks and to better serve the growing business needs of our clients.”

From humble beginnings in 1994 as a pure transport company based in Durban, to today being recognized as a leading end-to-end supply chain and logistics solution. The company’s services ranges from warehousing, distribution, containerized cargo to LCL (Less-than-Container Load) and airfreight shipments - enabling the company to partner with companies to manage their logistical needs to ensure compliance of their critical path aiming to achieve a 100% OTIF (On-Time In-Full) score.

Rory Schulz, Sales Director, UD Trucks Southern Africa comments: “We are pleased to be associated with a company like United Distribution and Transport Service, and to have remained a brand of choice over the years. Our relationship has been sustained by trust, open communication, as well as flexibility, and the delivery of the new Quester Euro 5 units reaffirms the company’s stance towards a cleaner, greener environment as well as fuel-efficiency. We look forward to future engagements and we have no doubt that the new fleet will have a positive impact to the success of the company”.   

In 2022, UDTSA responded to customer’s growing adoption of environmental and safety standards within their business operations with the expansion of its well-established Quester Euro 5 range in South Africa - which boasts feature enhancements that improve Uptime, Fuel-Efficiency, and optimize Total Cost of Ownership (TCO), all while lowering the vehicle’s environmental impact.

“We are pleased to have been able to meet the stringent requirements of United Distribution and Transport Services. This is testament to the company’s faith to the UD Trucks brand and our ability to cater directly to their business requirements. We wish them further growth in the future, and our doors are always open for any support”, concludes Ruan Joubert, Dealer Principal, CMH Commercial UD Trucks.
