Motruck appointed as Volvo dealer in Eswatini

By Phephile Motau

Volvo Trucks South Africa has announced the establishment of a new aftermarket and service dealer in Matsapha, Eswatini.

According to the company’s website, the newly appointed dealer, Motruck, has more than two decades of experience in commercial vehicle service and maintenance, and vast knowledge of the local industry.

“We currently have 19 dealers in South Africa and representation in Botswana, Mozambique, Namibia, Zambia, Zimbabwe, and now in Eswatini. This move brings world-class support closer to some of the larger Volvo Trucks fleets operating in Eswatini, and crossing the border into South Africa,” Waldemar Christensen, MD of Volvo Trucks South Africa said.

“With the Volvo Trucks vehicle parc continuing to increase, we are strengthening our reach with a focused strategy of bringing valuable support right to our customer’s doorsteps.”

Eswatini has close economic ties to South Africa, which it depends on for about 85 per cent of its imports and 60 per cent of its exports. The country is also a member of the Common Monetary Area (CMA), with Lesotho, Namibia, and South Africa. For this reason, many South African logistics companies run cargo to and from Eswatini, with additional support required to ensure the productivity of their fleets.

The company said the Motruck operations are strategically located in the Matsapha industrial area, with easy access to numerous major roads, including the MR3 highway. Several of Volvo Trucks’ major fleet customers also have their depots and headquarters in the area.

“Through skilled technicians, genuine parts, and specialised tools, Volvo Trucks dealers are committed to keeping our customers’ trucks in peak condition, and on the road as much as possible,” said Christensen.

“We believe that the quality of our dealerships and the level of sustainable support they provide along the major trade corridors in the region, adds significant value to our customer’s operations.”

Motruck started being operational to service Volvo Trucks customers on January 16.
