The order consists of three sub-purchases - 3,000 units of heavy haulage transportation vehicles for 400,000 RMB (US$57,000), 1,000 units of heavy dump trucks for the transportation of slag and mining ore for 420,000 RMB (US$60,000) and 800 passenger-class cars for160,000 RMB (US$23,000).
The vehicles will be procured from a variety of manufacturers within MEG’s alliance of partners, the company said. The order will be subject to a rolling delivery schedule throughout 2020.
In December, MEG signed a strategic partnership with Zhitong 3000 to offer services to its commercial fleet operators. The deal will see Zhitong act as a procurement partner for these initial orders and streamline the purchase, delivery and financing placement.
