KAZAN, March 26. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia’s largest truck maker KAMAZ will build 218 trucks for shipment of United Nations’ humanitarian cargoes, the company’s press centre has told Itar-Tass.
Trucks will be given as a contribution to the United Nations World Food Programme.
“KAMAZ will make its first trucks for the UN in June,” the press centre said. “Now we are preparing and finalizing contractual documents, discuss delivery terms and choose countries, where trucks will be sent.”
In 2014, the United Nations will get 100 trucks, including dropside trucks, dump trucks, tanker trucks and mobile repair shops with spare parts. KAMAZ will assemble other trucks in 2015.
Russia’s federal budget allocated around 727 million rubles ($20.5 million) for this purpose.
In 2013, the truck maker exported around 6,000 machines abroad, of them 3,600 trucks to Kazakhstan. The giant’s revenue from foreign trade operations reached some 1.8 billion rubles ($50.7 million).
