Forland Trucks Hits Zambian Market

The government has assured the business community that it will continue supporting developments of new technology that is aimed at increasing productivity and efficiency and creating jobs for the Zambian people.

Minister of Transport and Logistics, Frank Tayali has since assured Forland of the government’s support in ensuring that the economic environment of doing business is favorable for growth.

Mr. Tayali said this in a speech delivered on his behalf by Minister of Transport and Logistics Permanent Secretary Fredrick Mwalusaka during the launch of the Forland truck brand in Zambia held at CAMCO head office in Lusaka on Friday.

“I have noted with delight that Forland is covering almost the whole part of Zambia with branches located in Choma, Chipata, Kapiri mposhi, Kitwe, Ndola, and Solwezi, bringing their services to the doorsteps of our people,” he said.

The Minister said the milestone that Forland has achieved brings about many benefits to the transport and motor industry in Zambia.

“Forland brings about famous and reliable brands from China that would grant my Government’s aspirations for the quality motor industry in Zambia,” he added.

Speaking at the same event, CAMCO Group of Companies Marketing Director Bernard Chiwala said as Zambia transforms itself into a land-linked country, it is their noble ambition, through CAMCO Motors in partnership with Forland to provide motor vehicles on the Zambian market that will respond to the challenge of climate change the world is grappling with.

He explained that the motors that will be provided will be climate smart.

CAMCO Group Chairman Li Tie said the decision to choose the new brand was arrived at after detailed consideration of what the company can offer on market.

Meanwhile, Forland International East Africa Regional General Manager Harry Han said, “in the future, we hope we could have a chance to establish an automobile production plant in Zambia together with CAMCO to realize the localized production of automobiles in Zambia.
