Commenting on the launch, Smaine Nasri, Sales Director, Port Activity and Middle East Area, Gaussin Manugisitique added: “This is our latest product and we are proud to be launching it in Dubai.  The Middle East market represents for us 25% of our market share. We witnessed 12% market growth was coming from the Middle East compared to 5% in Europe during the past 5 years. Having one of our major product launches at SITL Dubai 2009 represents an ideal way to leverage our brand and share expertise with our peers."
Smaine Nasri, Sales Director, Port Activity and Middle East Area, Gaussin Manugistique continued, “The need to be faster, safer and cleaner is the drive behind our R&D team, who are continuously looking to find new ways of optimising production flows and reducing lead times whilst also reducing the environmental impact our machines have.  This innovative new Automotive Terminal Trailer is a great example of this work.”
Gaussin Manugistique has a long track record with the Middle East and the company already teamed up with DP World, Mina Zayed Port, Port of Oman and Gulftainer among others.

“Bringing SITL to Dubai will provide a platform on which the latest trends and technologies can be showcased; offering new insights and solutions through exclusive product and service launches.  The transport & logistics sector must continuously innovate, maximize operations, deliver cost savings, efficiency gains and enhance overall supply chain performance, and SITL can help industry professionals deliver such improvements.”
