Saudi Transport Legend
Al Sobhi Transport was established in 1984 as one of the oldest and biggest transporters in the western area. The company is also one of the oldest transporters for ARAMCO, for the transport and delivery of the latter’s bulk petroleum products.
They started their transport fleet with various brands, but recently shifted to Scania after discovering its outstanding operational performance. They made their first trial with ten (10) units Scania G410 4x2 LA tractors with manual transmission –and learned how a SCANIA vehicles made impact on quality and efficiency with least break-down & down time, least spare parts consumption, and above all, a very competitive fuel consumption compared to others. Such results led them to decide to continue with another fifteen (15) units of Scania G410 4x2 LA with opti-cruise. Mr. Shikh Abed Al-Sobhi testified the same about their Scania trucks, “I knew Scania very well but I was afraid to try it due some rumors in the market, after I tried it I can say that it was one of the best decisions I have ever taken.”
The services from GCC Olayan, Scania’s sole distributor in the kingdom, further added value to the company through its quick after sales support and consignment stock within Al Sobhi’s site in Yanbu, ensuring its continued and long-term partnership together.
