Truck com­pany in limbo

Herald Sun - Motoring - - Front Page -

The fu­ture of In­ter­na­tional trucks in Aus­tralia re­mains in limbo at it awaits a de­ci­sion by its Amer­i­can par­ent, Nav­is­tar. The un­cer­tainty fol­lows Nav­is­tar en­ter­ing a joint ven­ture with Cater­pil­lar last year. At the time it was an­nounced In­ter­na­tional would be mar­keted through Cater­pil­lar dealers, which cast doubt over the lo­cal deal with Iveco. Ru­mour is that lo­cal dis­tri­bu­tion will be taken over by Transpa­cific In­dus­tries, the im­porter and dis­trib­u­tor of West­ern Star and MAN trucks, with the lo­cal dis­tri­bu­tion of West­ern Star pos­si­bly ac­quired by Daim­ler Trucks.
