Our corporate customers and leisure travelers have one thing in common – they seek quality and ease.
Avis has successfully delivered on this need - globally and here in the UAE.
A global brand in the car rental industry, Avis is one of the world's largest car rental providers. Established in 1946, it is present in 5,500 locations in more than 165 countries.
The partnership between the Mohamed Hareb Al Otaiba Group and Avis dates to 1975. It was during this time we brought the American franchise to the UAE to provide on-demand mobility solutions and personalized customer experience.
Through Avis, we have been offering short- and long-term rentals across United Arab Emirates for the past 50 years. Our fleet holds a range of thousands of vehicles - small to large and luxury cars.
We also offer convenient services such as after-hour returns, car delivery at your doorstep, and chauffer drives. In addition, our customers can benefit from our features including extra drivers, portable GPS devices, and child, baby, and booster seats if required.
Since the mid-1970s, our company Al Otaiba General Transport (AOGT) has been serving clients in the hospitality, government, education, and private sectors.
An industry leader, AOGT has many satisfied clients to date and has been recognized by these customers for their service with numerous awards of appreciation.
As of 2020, we have 600+ fleet at AOGT in Abu Dhabi, Sharjah, and Ajman, providing staff transportation, bus leasing and fleet management.
Over the years, we have adopted global safety standards and protocols. Example: All our operations are in line with Quality, Health, Safety and Environment Management (QHSE) standards.
This commitment to safety has earned us top industry recognition. To name a few, AOGT was the recipient of the prestigious Dubai Award for Sustainable Transport (DAST) by the Roads and Transport Authority in 2018 and 2019. The award recognizes best practices in sustainability and innovative mobility solutions.
Depending on the requirements, we support our clients with value-added services to help them optimize their operations and boost safety. These include:

Along with strategic sustainability, we have also participated in annual road safety campaigns sponsored by government entities.
New technologies and innovations are fueling growth across sectors in the country including trade and logistics. It’s no surprise at the Global Innovation Index 2020, the UAE maintained its number one rank in the Arab World and 34th globally.
It is within this spirit of innovation we introduced PicTruc in 2020, a solution for the logistics industry.
Formerly known as Unanu, headquartered in the US with operations in India and the UAE, the technology has automated supply chain logistics for pharmaceuticals, FMCG and multiple industry verticals, carrying over 100K+ tons of freight for clients to date.
Through PicTruc, our partnership offers a marketplace end-to-end logistics platform, providing much needed insights for more efficient supply chains. PicTruc’s technology provides the software to monitor movement whereas the Mohamed Hareb Al Otaiba Group runs on-ground operations in the UAE.
The benefits of end-to-end supply chain visibility include:
- Real-time data to boost efficiency.
- Increased reliability and productivity.
- Reduce risks and costs.
- Proactive decisions through data.
- Increased energy efficiency.
- Ensure reliability and predictability.
