Africa sees its fleet of “white” trucks from Russia expand
KAMAZ is taking an active part in the second stage of revamping the UN World Food Programme’s global fleet of trucks. The automaker’s press center reports that deliveries of white trucks from Russia are planned for Uganda and Ghana, which will receive 53 and 22 units, respectively.
As part of Russia’s humanitarian aid, a large consignment of KAMAZ trucks and trailers has already been supplied to the UN World Food Programme regional center in Dubai. According to the head of the center in the United Arab Emirates, KAMAZ’s vehicles have allowed the humanitarian mission to expand its operational transportation resource and significantly boost the efficiency of its emergency response system.
The World Food Programme is the largest organization in the UN, providing humanitarian aid to those in need — survivors of natural disasters and military conflicts all over the world. In 2011, KAMAZ supplied 40 trucks to the World Food Programme, which were successfully integrated with the organization’s fleet in Afghanistan. Another 218 trucks were delivered in 2014. Those vehicles are now being used in the Congo, CAR, South Sudan, and Ethiopia.
It was previously reported that Russia is among the ten largest exporters of food aid to African countries and is willing to expand bilateral agricultural cooperation with countries on the continent. Russian companies are interested both in increasing their sales and in expanding the range of products they export. In addition, it should be noted that Russian motorcycles are exported to countries on all the continents.
