Swaidan supplies 700 Ashok/Sunwin buses in the UAE
Swaidan Trading delivers a large volume of buses to public and private fleets for the start of the school year
Swaidan Trading, the leading provider of commercial bus fleets in the UAE, has delivered more than 700 school buses to UAE schools in the past two weeks in line with the start of the new academic year.
The Euro III turbo-charged buses include both Ashok Leyland Falcon and Sunwin models — all of them either compliant with Roads & Transport Authority and Department of Transport regulations or exceeding the safety standards set by the authorities.
The buses were purchased for the fleets operated by Emirates Transport Corporation, School Transport Services and various private schools in the country.
Ajit Kumar, CEO of Swaidan Trading, said: “When it comes to school buses, we go to great lengths to customise the fleet to meet the highest safety and operational standards. We like to innovate and we were the first bus fleet provider to introduce height adjustable seatbelts to our fleets.”
The volume continues a strong growth trend seen by Swaidan in its 2016 sales, and which Kumar predicts will continue for the remainder of the year — prior to the introduction of new GSO bus regulations in 2017 that will increase manufacturing costs.
Kumar added that Swaidan Trading has now led the way in providing safe transport for UAE students, and in the introduction of other safety features including Wi-Fi enabled cameras, RFID passenger monitoring and strong maintenance and support network.
Kumar added: “Our ability to tailor solutions and offer local servicing and maintenance has made us a trusted UAE provider.”
He also higlighted Swaidan’s efforts to develop customer comfort and entertainment within the local luxury bus segment.
