Into Africa

The August issue of Truck West included a feature on Mammoth Trucks, a B.C.-based company that custom-builds used trucks for customers in Africa. The Canadian-built trucks are converted to cabover engine, right-hand drive configurations to meet the needs of freight haulers in Africa and around the world. This is the first Mammoth produced by the company and destined for a well-known trucking company in Africa. It was driven to Ontario by Mammoth owner Geoff Gogle before being shipped to Africa in late November. The truck handled the cross-country trek admirably, Gogle told Truck West, before it was loaded up and shipped across the Atlantic. Mammoth already has orders for four more trucks.
