Modern tractors KAMAZ-5490 effectively solve transport problems in the field of intercity and international road transport.
On Friday, July 30, in Naro-Fominsk (Moscow Region), a solemn ceremony of handing over a large batch of KAMAZ-5490 gas-powered vehicles to Globaltruck took place.
The event, which took place at the Autobau dealership, was attended by Dmitry Leonov, General Director of TFK KAMAZ JSC, and Igor Krivonos, Purchasing Director of Globaltrack Management PJSC. In total, the client purchased 50 natural gas vehicles KAMAZ-5490 running on compressed natural gas (CNG).
During the event, Igor Krivonos, Procurement Director of PJSC Globaltrack Management, noted that the company continues the program of updating its own vehicle fleet with a focus on increasing its economic efficiency and, most importantly, environmental friendliness. «Previously, we used only foreign models of tractors and semi-trailers, but with the existing parity in the quality of Russian and foreign trucks, and taking into account the rise in prices for imported tractors, the choice in favor of KAMAZ tractors is obvious for us», stressed Igor Krivonos. - Before making the final decision on choosing a model, we tested KAMAZ tractors with two types of engines in different modes: bi-fuel and monogas. Based on the results of lengthy tests, the choice was made in favor of a tractor with a monogas engine. For two years now, our company has been successfully operating equipment with a similar engine installed on European tractors. These machines exhibit excellent economics and performance in our unique Express Delivery technology. The acquisition of 50 KAMAZ gas tractors will be the first experience in the operation of Russian equipment».
«We are delighted to welcome Globaltruck to our new customers. It is noteworthy that the leading Russian commercial cargo carrier has chosen our new models of gas-fueled tractors, Dmitry Leonov noted in turn. - We are confident that the high-quality KAMAZ equipment will be highly appreciated by Globaltruck, will improve its efficiency and strengthen its leadership position in the market. We will be glad to continue our cooperation in the future».
