MFS Premium Service provided to our client in Somalia:
We were approached by field officers of our client in Somalia.
They were having major problems with fuel. Nearly every second day one of their vehicles was being taken out of service due to fuel related problems. Most of their fleet was consisted of Toyota Land Cruiser vehicles. Unfortunately for them, proper maintenance and servicing of their vehicles had not been done due to poor servicing possibilities in the region.
In order to understand the situation better, our Field Support Team flew out to Mogadishu. They inspected all the vehicles making a detailed report for each vehicle. As part of our “MFS Premium Service” program this service was
“free of charge.”
Our team on the ground were quick to determine that the extremely low fuel quality was ruining fuel pumps and injectors. They planned for a simple fuel filtering system. Our backup team worked on the costs of parts needed for the servicing, plus the supplies needed for the simple fuel filtering system. Upon approval of the order from the head office of our client, our logistics team sent the needed parts to Mogadishu. Our field support service team made a return trip to Mogadishu. They serviced all the vehicles and implemented the upgraded fuel filtering system. Now the fleet is running without problems. All the vehicles are back up and running and permanently in service.
Client was operating an armoured Mercedes-Benz S class in Northern Iraq. The vehicle had major suspension problems impeding its driving capability. As the vehicle was not armoured by the German OEM manufacturer, the local dealership was not obliged or willing to provide any assistance or provide support.
Our team came into the picture, identified the armouring company and immediately got into touch with them. Working together with the armourer, the necessary parts were procured and delivered to Erbil, Iraq within a short time period. Our Field Support Team flew out to the end-user location and installed the defective parts with the parts originally used by the armouring company. The vehicle received a complete free of charge check over, the client was informed of the results receiving a detailed report. And vehicle was back on the road where it belonged.
Ballistic glass and delaminating are a constant issue with many armoured vehicles. Delamination will inevitably impede the drivers view and the ballistic integrity of the glass will deteriorate. At some time the armoured vehicle will no longer be able to retain it ballistic or blast level of protection. Our client in Senegal had such a problem and needed assistance and a solution to replace the heavy windscreen.
Client also mentioned that the vehicle required new tyres; not normally an issue, but the local workshop and dealerships were simply unable to replace tyres with run-flat inserts. They simply lacked know-how and experience. Client’s head office was planning to have all x5 wheel-systems replaced incl. run-flat, rim, and tyre and ship everything to Senegal.
Naturally very expensive! MotorPlus provided them with a cost effective solution. Our team replace the windscreen and changed the tyres. The vehicle received a full check-up and was back on the road. Client saved a lot of money and all in one service visit.
The above testimonies are only three examples of how MotorPlus can assist with getting vehicles back into service. Armoured vehicles that would normally have spent a number of consecutive months sitting in the corner of a compound listed as VOR. Our philosophy is simple, you call us, we fly out, fix the problem, put the vehicle back on the road and return.
