Agility sees double in Abu Dhabi

[ November 4, 2020   //   ]

Agility has become the first logistics company in Abu Dhabi to operate double-trailer trucks, to reduce emissions by cutting the number of trips made. 

About 50 of Agility’s fleet in the Emirate are now double-trailer trucks. In the first six months of operation, fleet management data showed that the double trailers reduced fuel use by 26% per container, eliminating about 2,500 tonnes of CO2 emissions per year. 

Acquiring the permit to the trucks took six months of proposals, trials, accident simulations, and safety demonstrations. Agility worked together with a local automotive distributor to develop the safest possible solution for the market, including Active Brake Assist 4, proximity control, and lane assist and conducted a route survey to identify any issues.
