Fuso on its way to becoming an efficiency champion: Major order received for 140 efficient Fuso trucks from transport customer Linfox Logistics in Thailand

Fuso 2015 growth strategy – Leader in green innovation

In its efforts to optimize total cost of ownership and reduce CO2 emissions by 7.5 percent, Fuso aims to be a leader in fuel efficiency and green innovation. This claim is based on one of the five pillars of the Fuso 2015 growth strategy, with which Fuso aims to double international sales to 200,000 units annually over the medium-term. However, Fuso not only wants to further boost sales, as it is also focusing on the development and production of sustainable commercial vehicles. “With great dedication, Fuso is forging ahead with advanced environmentally friendly technologies, focusing, on the one hand, on the optimization of conventional, fuel-efficient diesel drive technologies, and, on the other hand, on the further development of hybrid and electric drive systems,” states Gustav Tuschen, MFTBC Vice President of Product Engineering.

Successful growth through partnership with longtime customer

MFTBC will continue to focus on its commitment to delivering reliable, durable, and clean commercial vehicles of high quality. This is demonstrated amongst other things by the loyalty of the customer Linfox, with which Fuso has a longtime partnership in Thailand that dates back to 1998. The order for 140 Fuso trucks will expand Linfox’s existing Fuso fleet of 240 vehicles. The trucks will be handed over by May 2012.

Linfox Logistics is the leading privately-owned supply chain solutions company in the Asia-Pacific region. Founded in 1956 and head-quartered in Melbourne, Australia, the company operates a total of 5,000 vehicles in 10 countries.
