Commenting on the deal, Mr. Till Oberworder from Mercedes-Benz said, “Our economical and eco-friendly long-distance haulage vehicles and the close-knit Mercedes-Benz service network in Europe go a long way to supporting the expansion strategy of Ekol Logistics.” He further added, “At the same time, it speaks volumes for the success of our transnational customer support. Our Global Key Account Management was able to successfully carry out such a large order together with many different Daimler value-added partners in Turkey, Romania and Germany.”

Mr. Ahmet Musul from Ekol was also present at the handover of the first trucks and shared his views. He said, “The Mercedes-Benz Actros trucks are fuel-efficient and reliable.
