MeTL Group’s transport and logistics company, Glenrich Transportation, has been crucial to the growth of MeTL Group by providing a cost-effective means of meeting the organization’s transportation needs, within Tanzania and beyond.
Glenrich Transportation has a presence in every corner of the country providing fast delivery of goods and efficient services to the clients. Furthermore, the company has expanded with offices in Zambia, Uganda and Kenya giving the company a greater reach to deliver its services. Glenrich offers transportation services from Dar es Salaam to anywhere in Tanzania, as well as Kenya, Uganda, Zambia, Rwanda, Burundi, Malawi and the Democratic Republic of Congo.
Glenrich Transportation uses the latest technology to provide the best services to its clients. All Glenrich trucks are fitted with GPRS units to monitor the location and other necessary information. All trucks are monitored for 24 hours by the operations center providing daily reports of consignments to clients. Glenrich vehicles all come from reputed manufacturers such as Scania, DAF, MAN, Renault to efficient and prominent Chinese brands like FA. Additionally warehousing facilities on short-term basis and other logistical requirements are also easily catered to in order to ensure that the customer gets all services under one roof.
The Glenrich fleet contains more than 1,000 different types of vehicle, with carrying capacities from 0.5 to 34 tons. Vehicles include containerized semi trailers, flat bed semi trailers, side body semi trailers, containerized inter semi trailers, dumping trucks and two to eight ton box bodies. The fleet is maintained and serviced regularly by 120 trained mechanics based in Glenrich’s own fully equipped workshop in Dar es Salaam.
Glenrich aims to double its current transportation tonnage from 20,000 tons to 40,000 tons per month. The company aims to double its fleet by opening offices in nearby countries so as to gain more market share. As part of MeTL Group, Glenrich expects to grow at a higher rate compared to the market due to large volume of business coming from sister companies and the expansion of MeTL Group would require a larger fleet to meet the demands of the consumers in East African countries for years to come.
