Iveco Bus breaks into the Senegalese market

Iveco Crossway in Dakar, Senegal

Senegal / Italy– Late last year Iveco Bus (a brand of the Iveco Group NV) based in Turin, delivered its first batch of diesel ICE Crossway buses* (an order of 370) to the DAKAR DEM DIKK to operate in the Senegalese capital, marking the brand's entry into this market. The remaining units will be delivered by the end of Q1 2024, along with a batch of spare parts and tools needed for maintenance and upkeep ensuring optimum efficiency and performance. This milestone signifies Iveco’s growth in the African market.

Gauthier Ricord, Head of Africa and Middle East Commercial Operations at Iveco Bus said: "We are delighted with this first contract in Senegal, which demonstrates IVECO BUS's ability to offer mobility solutions that are perfectly adapted to local contexts. We are proud to support DAKAR DEM DIKK not only with our Crossway models, but also to contribute with our training and support services to the local development of the skills and know-how essential to guarantee an excellent level of service for the vehicles."
