Daim­ler In­dia Com­mer­cial Ve­hi­cles (DICV) along with Mit­subishi Fuso Truck and Bus Cor­po­ra­tion ( MFTBC), Ja­pan, a Daim­ler company, has started shipping Fuso trucks to In­done­sia from the DICV plant in Chen­nai.

With the new range of trucks, the company wants to add mo­men­tum in a mar­ket where Fuso had al­ready es­tab­lished as lead­ing com­mer­cial ve­hi­cle brand.

The new mod­els are based on the same tech­ni­cal Daim­ler Trucks prod­uct plat­form as the BharatBenz mar­quee and this en­ables the pro­duc­tion of both truck brands un­der one roof. The trucks are dis­trib­uted in In­done­sia by P.T. Krama Yudha Tiga Ber­lian Mo­tors (KTB) and are be­ing moved from In­dia to In­done­sia by Nis­san Mo­tor Car Car­ri­ers.

The new Fuso trucks are al­ready dis­trib­uted to Kenya, Sri Lanka, Zam­bia, Tan­za­nia, Zim­babwe, Bangladesh, and Brunei. With a clear view on the growth po­ten­tial in Asia and Africa, FUSO is in prepa­ra­tion to con­tin­u­ously add fur­ther mar­kets to its strong mar­ket pres­ence. There are plans to ex­pand this dis­tri­bu­tion for 2014 which in­cludes Thai­land, Malaysia, Malawi, Mozam­bique, Mau­ri­tius and the Sey­chelles.
