General Automotive Company (GAC), the official distributer of FUSO trucks in Oman, recently handed over the keys of two new FUSO FJ 4x2 Cargo Body Trucks to Al Minji International LLC, a specialised PDO transport and crane service provider to bule chip clients like Vanguard Reservoir Surveillance services (VRSS).
The trucks were handed over to Waleed Said Mohamed Al Minji by Manoj Ranade, the GM of General Automotive Company, at the FUSO showroom in Azaiba. Also present at the handover ceremony were members of the senior management and staff from both companies.
Commenting on this occasion Manoj Ranade said, “We are truly honoured to have Al Minji International choose the FUSO FJ to expand their fleet with. FUSO’s global reputation for performance and reliability, has secured it a strong position within the Omani market. I am confident that each of these FUSO FJ Trucks will be a welcome addition to the Al Minji International fleet and will contribute to the success of their operations.”
“We established ourselves in 2014 and currently run a significantly sized mixed fleet of vehicles. FUSO is a brand with proven quality and reliability, while also providing comfortable cabins for drivers, all qualities we value greatly. These two new trucks will no doubt be valuable additions to the fleet. In fact, these are only the first two of seven FUSO trucks we are planning to add to the fleet over the coming year,” added Waleed Said Mohamed Al Minji.
The Mitsubishi Fuso Truck and Bus Corporation is one of Japan’s leading commercial vehicle manufacturers and has been present in Oman for over four decades, which has allowed the brand to build a loyal customer base and a strong platform for introducing new light, medium, and heavy-duty trucks and buses to the market.
All Fuso vehicles are characterised by their strong performance, high fuel efficiency, and great comfort. They have been optimised to transform any driving experience into a great one. They also provide customers with the flexibility to choose the type that suits their business needs.
The FUSO FJ is one of the newer generation trucks from FUSO. Designed for heavy-duty operations, the FUSO FJ features a powerful yet efficient 6.4l Turbo Diesel engine mated to a smooth shifting 9-Speed and 6 speed transmission for optimal driver comfort and operational efficiency. They also feature chassis frame members that are not only deeper and thicker than the previous model but are also shot peened and powder coated for greater strength and resistance to corrosion, leading to greater long-term reliability and operational costs. These particular 18.4 Ton GVW FUSO FJ 4x2 Cargo Body Truck models have a chassis payload capacity of up to 12 tons and include the full range of PDO-compliant modification, complete with OPAL certification.
Fuso trucks are available from all General Automotive Company FUSO showrooms in Muscat, Sohar, Nizwa, Ibri, Barka, Sur, Jaalan Bani Bu Ali, and Salalah.
