MV wins first contract outside N. America

Posted on February 7, 2012

MV Transportation Inc. and Earadat Transportation LLC entered into a new two-year management agreement on Jan. 1, 2012. Under the contract, MV will provide management services for the operation of Earadat's transit system in Saudi Arabia's eastern province. It is also MV's first contract agreement outside of North America.

MV Transportation appointed a GM and an operations manager to serve as the local management team and will have them in place before the end of February. The team will be responsible for the successful operation of Earadat's passenger transportation system, a 416-bus operation providing transportation for Saudi Arabian Oil Company's employees.

In addition, the MV team will train Saudi Arabian citizens to assume management once MV's contract has ended.
