Mozambique's Strauss Logistics Placed an Order for 44 FAW Truck Tractors
Harare-based Strauss Logistics, a liquid fuels distribution giant, recently announced that it has placed an order for 44 FAW 33.420FT truck tractors from Choice Diesel Mozambique, which makes it FAW's first and exclusive distributor in Mozambique.
The truck tractors were sourced and supplied by FAW South Africa, having been assembled in the company’s world-class Coega plant in the Eastern Cape. After they were fitted with bull bars and flat-deck trailers in Johannesburg.The units would be licensed and registered in Harare. The FAW trucks in the company fleet will be used for hauling general cargo from Durban to Kolwezi and are expected to run more than 100,000km a year. While additional trucks will work on the Beira Corridor, which links Mutare in Zimbabwe with the Beira and Tete in Mozambique.
This is the first time for Strauss Logistics to purchase FAW trucks. The company previously used European and North American brands for transporting Chinese-sourced fuel tankers throughout Zimbabwe, Zambia and Mozambique.
Founded in 2010, Strauss Logistics is a leading distributor of petroleum products in Central and Southern Africa. Today, there has been more than 200 trucks and more than 60 rail tank cars operating in the company. Servicing second-tier retail customers and large industrial and commercial fuel users, Strauss Logistics move diesel, petrol, Avgas, Jet A1, Ethanol, White Spirits and liquefied petroleum gas across the Southern Africa Development Community (SADC) region.
Strauss Logistics will start with the transport of general cargo and bulk, that is the reason why it decided to buy the 44 FAW 33.420FTs. The number of trucks in the company fleet is expected to increase to 250 units by 2020. “There is a new political and economic environment in Zimbabwe,” says Da Silva. “Commodity prices have risen and there is decent work in the DRC." Before taking delivery, Strauss Logistics’drivers travelled to SA for technical training as well as general vehicle maintenance training.
“We needed a truck supplier that had stock and parts available —in Southern Africa — and was therefore truly capable of serving all our needs promptly,” Da Silva says. A large workshop operated by Strauss Logistics will be audited as part of FAW SA's efforts to standardise its distributors.
