Daimler’s truck exports from Chennai cross 5000 units

Daimler India Commercial Vehicles (DICV) has exported over 5000 trucks from its factory near Chennai. This has been achieved in less than three years after the start of exports in 2013.  That’s a pheonomenal achievement indeed.

DICV has been exporting Oragadam-built trucks under Fuso brand to Asian and African markets. The Chennai factory now serves more than 20 countries in Asia, the Middle East, Africa and Latin America. Also, about 10 more markets will be added during this year, according to a company statement.  That’s fast growth, for sure.

The Fuso range of vehicles currently features four medium-duty (9-16 tonnes) trucks and twelve heavy-duty (16-49 tonnes) trucks, which are developed and rigorously tested to meet the diverse requirements of the target markets. As these products are expanding, the Fuso brand’s product line-up in segments that were previously not served, opening additional growth opportunities.  The company is certain to tap most of these openings.

“Our successful domestic BharatBenz business is one pillar of DICV’s strategic role and exports of vehicles and production material is another. We are proud of 5000 trucks produced for Fuso and more than nine million parts exported to other units within Daimler Trucks worldwide – these are the kind of success stories which underline the potentials of Make in India,” said Erich Nesselhauf, Managing Director and CEO, Daimler India Commercial Vehicles.  Pride in one’s work is welcome anywhere.

DICV has also exported a few hundred bus chassis produced at its bus plant, located next to the truck plant on the premises of DICV’s production unit at Oragadam. It has also been supplying vehicle kits to Kenya for local assembly by a Fuso partner since March 2016 - starting with 25-tonne truck model, further vehicles from the new robust Fuso range will be added subsequently.
