    Default Chevron Pakistan launches first GTS truck

    Chevron Pakistan launches first GTS truck

    Tuesday, 13 May 2008 14:46 Bliss
    In pursuit of Chevron's Global Marketing Vision "to be 1 in the Hearts and Minds of our Customers," Chevron Pakistan has set yet another benchmark in the oil industry with the launch of the Chevron GTS (Global Trucking Standards) Truck in Pakistan.

    In order to ensure safety of people, petroleum products and the environment; the GTS truck incorporates the latest technology and the most advanced safety features such as aluminium tank, maximum power/weight ratio, air bag, ABS braking, rollover stability system, on board computer, air suspension, cruise control, speed limiter, intelligent automatic transmission, fall Protection, vapor recovery, automatic fault diagnosis, etc. Moreover, Chevron GTS trucks are environmentally friendly and conform to Euro-III emission standards to minimise greenhouse gases from the engine exhaust.

    Chevron Pakistan is the first company in Pakistan, which has introduced such state-of-the-art trucks conforming to the most stringent international safety and engineering standards. At present, no other oil company in Pakistan has this kind of truck in its fleet for transportation of petroleum products. It is commendable to mention that the price of one such GTS truck is around Rs 16 million (Rs 16,000,000) which is a visible demonstration of Chevron Pakistan's commitment towards the safety and total customer satisfaction.

    Chevron Pakistan is proud to be the pioneer company in Pakistan to introduce the safest road transportation of petroleum products through the latest technology based truck. The Company is aggressively working to add more GTS trucks under its proprietary fleet as part of Chevron's Road Transport Safety and Capital Stewardship programmes.

    It is believed that other oil companies in Pakistan would also join hands with Chevron to induct similar advanced trucks in their fleet for safe, efficient and reliable road transportation of petroleum products in Pakistan. As per Chevron Pakistan Management, Safety is not only paramount to their business success but is even more important to the welfare of people, the environment and our coming generations. Let us work together to build a better, safer and more prosperous Pakistan. Pakistan Daily (www.Daily.pk)

    Can some one please upload the pics of these trucks.

    Also what is the price of the normal trucks with similer carrying capacity. I think 16 million rupees is way too high for smaller transport compnies and hence it may have limited market.

    Its a good step, but a 16 million price tag is too much for a country where people are more prone to build & save wealth, rather than its expenditure on safety of their clients and enhancement of business.
    Also without the specs, no one could say about their feasbility on our roads.

    My question is where are universities, students, Pakistani cooporations and entreprenuers who would like to THINK and make more feasible and structured materials for their own society, rather than welcoming a gora to market a 20 years old product and make his $$ and run away.
    Seems like youngsters are only interested in talking politics, music or wanna be mullah.
    Allah hafiz.

    I agree with the above arguments. Its easy for Chevron Pakistan to import a truck from, say UK/USA/Australia or fit imported hi-tech stuff on a local truck and proclaim their claim to glory. What would have been really great was to develop a locally assembled truck with local safety components. That would have been a great job.
