SHERP are one of a kind vehicles – suitable for absolutely any surface and climate on planet Earth. They are built for the rugged demands of commercial operators from geologists, oil workers, rescue agents to fishermen, hunters, extreme drivers and travelers.

Ultra-low pressure tires of SHERP are interconnected by a special “eco-circuit” and pumped up by the exhaust gases. Due to this technology, the wheels act as a suspension and allow the vehicle to overcome any humps, bumps, and even waters of the expedition routes.

Ease of maintenance and repairability are the cornerstone of the SHERP. The combination of simple solutions and cutting-edge technologies are the basis of the SHERP philosophy.

2019 Best Transport Achievement Award

The 2019 Fleet Forum Best Transport Achievement Award has been awarded to the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) for the SHERP project. Nenad Grkovic and Paul Dettmer accepted the award on behalf of WFP.

SHERP is the name given to the amphibious all-terrain vehicle recently piloted by WFP. Its key objective for engaging in alternative modes of transportation is to reduce transport costs by replacing airlifts and airdrops, which accounts for a substantial share of its overall operations budget.

WFP’s Global Fleet Unit has been assessing innovative solutions to ensure the operational continuation of goods deliveries by WFP’s truck fleet under complex conditions. Due to poor infrastructure, tough terrain and flooded roads, WFP often relies on airdrops and airlifts during rainy season. Transporting goods by air, however, results in both extensive costs and significantly higher environmental impact compared to overland transportation. Often, it’s the “last-mile” that poses the most difficulties for road transportation and eventually leaves no other option than to use aircrafts to deliver food commodities.

SHERP, an all-terrain vehicle, has outstanding, unparalleled off-road performance, excellent maneuverability, simple engineering and the ability to float and pass any terrain, including swamps and climbing obstacles up to one meter.

The trial operations showed that the SHERP allowed WFP to reach its destinations at a fraction of the cost of air transportation: A 75% reduction in cost resulted in effective savings of USD 1.7m in 5 weeks. The use of the SHERP also positively impacts the effectiveness of WFP’s food transport operations as they allow them to reach locations irrespective of the seasonal and weather conditions.
