For the sixth successive year, Mercedes Benz Actros led the sales of prime mover trucks with 121 units delivered in 2018 giving DT Dobie a 35 percent share of the market.
Explaining the success of the Actros Mohamed Chatur, the General Sales Manager for Heavy Commercial Vehicles at DT Dobie,said, “This is due to the truck’s well-earned reputation for reliability and long life combined with value for money, servicing and repairs carried out by factory trained technicians who are backed by a comprehensive stock of spares.”
Another factor is the DT Dobie programme run by Joe Mungai who is in charge of driver training. He explained, “The three-day course features a mix of classroom and on the road lessons. The curriculum is based on the key role of drivers to achieve the best possible return from the owner’s investment by maximizing fuel economy and prolonging the life of tyres to reduce the need for repairs and the purchase of spares.”
