This significant celebration marks another milestone for Mercedes-Benz Trucks together with its dealership NMI Commercial Vehicles Durban, as they successfully handed-over 15 Mercedes-Benz Actros models in April 2021 to their long-standing customer - Grindrod Intermodal.

Eugene Govender, National Transport Manager of Grindrod Intermodal says: “We took a decision to go back to Mercedes-Benz Trucks for obvious and justifiable reasons; to be the best in the game, you have to partner with the best. This is one brand that does not compromise when it comes to fuel efficiency, safety and reliability and they remain the leader in the market. In addition to this, I have to also commend Elvis Moodley from NMI Commercial Vehicles Durban for his excellent service, the journey was absolutely smooth and effortless from start to finish. We look forward to many more purchases in the near future as we continue to expand our business and we remain confident that we have made the right choice by partnering with Mercedes-Benz Trucks”.

“We would like to extend our appreciation to Grindrod Intermodal for their ongoing support to the brand. They have become a part of our family now and this is testament to the meaningful relationship we have built over the years. We remain committed in supporting their business as they continue to grow from strength to strength. We look forward to future engagements and wish their business the success it deserves”, comments Maretha Gerber, Head of Mercedes-Benz Trucks.   

Grindrod Intermodal is a division of Grindrod Limited based in Durban, and has been a part of the Mercedes-Benz Trucks stable for 2 years. With this exciting purchase, the company will now boast a total of 48 Mercedes-Benz Actros models in their current fleet. Grindrod Intermodal prides itself in offering customers end-to-end service with a strong focus on providing reliable, flexible and innovative tailor-made logistics solutions centred on customers’ needs.

Govender further adds “As part of the purchase we also had to consider important factors such as pricing and maintenance plans the for our new trucks. This is why we opted for financing through Mercedes-Benz Financial Services and also taking the comprehensive Service Contract package. I am pleased that all these value-added services are offered under one roof, which is very convenient for us”.
