Mercedes-Benz Trucks is thrilled to welcome the newest member of the family - JEYS Logistics! This follows a successful handover of the Mercedes-Benz Actros models; (2) 2645LS/33 FS and (2) 2645LS/33 RE to JEYS Logistics, by our dealer New Vaal Motors Vereeniging in April 2021. JEYS Logistics has been in operation since October 2020, and is a family owned and operated logistics company based in Gauteng.

“We have considered the fuel consumption and maintenance costs of our current financed non-Daimler models, and compared it with the Mercedes-Benz Actros models. After this evaluation, we took a decision to trade-in the 2 older models and purchased 4 new models from Mercedes-Benz Trucks to save on fuel and to be more profitable. Out of the 4 models, the 2 will replace our non-Daimler old models and the balance will assist in servicing the increasing demand from our current clients”, said Elwyn and Yolanda Steenkamp of JEYS Logistics.

 

Maretha Gerber, Head of Mercedes-Benz Trucks added: “It is with great pleasure to handover these sparkling new models to JEYS Logistics. We are excited about this partnership, and most importantly the contribution our fuel efficient, safe and reliable vehicles are going to make towards this up-and-coming business. We pride ourselves in providing customised solutions for the diverse needs of our customers to meet their business needs. We would like extend our appreciation for the support and the trust placed in our brand, and wish them all the best as they continue to expand their business operation”.

 

In addition to this, Mercedes-Benz Trucks is pleased to confirm that as part of the purchase, the customer has also included the value-added services such as Mercedes-Benz Financial Services, Fleetboard and Service Contract. This forms part of the brand’s overall strategy of being a one-stop shop and to be a part of the customer’s business journey to ensure optimal experience and profitability.

With JEYS Logistics being a family oriented business, the name of the company is made up of the initials of the Steenkamp family. The “fleet numbers” seen on the trucks are the birth years of the company’s directors and their wives. As the fleet expands, the plan is to use the birth years of the other family members, sons and daughters, in order to make up the numbers.
