According to Mrs. Vanessa Uansohia, Manager, Corporate Communications, SAHCO PLC, the machines are manufactured by a French company, Charlatte Manutention.

They are also ergonomically designed which helps with making maneuvering on the ramp easy which is essential to provide safe, speedy and efficient services to clients.
‘’Furthermore, the tractors are built to be rugged, reliable and suitable for the rugged terrain of the Nigerian climate. The zero-emission ground support equipment is environmentally friendly machines that do not emit air pollutants and are noiseless to the users,’’ she said.
