When it comes to a Truck Partner, we at FUSO have made it our business to be the Simply Better Partner of choice, in every way. We’ve also made it our business to know what your business looks for in a partnership: reliability and quality, the confidence that comes from knowing that you’ll get value for money and the best service support as a result of your choice.
In terms of reliability and quality, we deliver robust vehicles with a fit-for-purpose design and excellent quality parts backed by the Daimler Proven Technology promise. Our value-added services such as FUSO Fit, FUSO Finance, Driver Training and TruckStore mean that we’re able to offer you unparalleled value for money.
We’re able to help you keep your business on the road by delivering the best service support through our
expansive FUSO Southern African dealer network footprint that provides access to superior service, expert assistance and quicker parts availability, with the ability to service nationwide.
Our vehicles are known for their benchmark fuel efficiency and ecology as well as their best lifetime cost advantage, which takes into account the initial purchase price, cost and profit drivers, residual values, tax and insurance advantages, maintenance cycles and fuel efficiency.
Our plants are efficient, too. We monitor energy use with a state-of-the art energy management system. And through green innovation in logistics, we have introduced modal shifts and milk run supply chains to reduce our CO2 emissions.
Solid and functional design
We're passionate about designing vehicles that are just as comfortable and practical to use as they are well made and reliable. Good design, after all, results from an ideal combination of utility and aesthetics.
But what also makes our vehicles so popular is that we listen to our customers before we design them.
The FUSO Canter, for instance, pioneered an in-panel shifter because drivers needed to exit the cab from both sides in some applications. And the optional headlight configurations on our medium-duty trucks were inspired by the varying needs of construction and city applications.
With world firsts such as pneumatic shift transmission, shock-reducing DUONIC® dual-clutch transmission and onboard display units, FUSO continues to embrace and adapt new technologies to improve our vehicles.
Across all disciplines, our staff are regularly skilled up through various FUSO dealership training programmes. This ensures that our customers always receive the best service.
Our parts are tested to manufacturer specifications and are provided by the original supplier to make sure they work exactly as they should.
The comprehensive warranties and maintenance leases we offer reflect our faith in the longevity and reliability of our vehicles.
FUSO is an integral part of Daimler AG, the world's largest manufacturer of commercial vehicles.
Imported from Japan and India in completely knocked down kits, the FUSO range is assembled on the fully integrated production line at our plant in East London, South Africa.
FUSO South Africa is headquartered at Mercedes-Benz SA in Pretoria, and supports an extensive dealership network that spans Malawi, Mozambique, Zambia and Zimbabwe.
