Daimler India Commercial Vehicles Pvt. Ltd. (DICV), a 100 per cent wholly owned subsidiary of Daimler AG, Stuttgart, Germany along with Mitsubishi Fuso Truck and Bus Corporation, Japan (MFTBC), a Daimler Company, started exporting its DICV-made FUSO trucks to Cambodia, making it the 13th market for DICV.
This market is growing rapidly in many sectors like garments, logistics, mining and constructions.
For these sectors five newly developed FUSO truck models are manufactured at DICV’s Oragadam plant, near Chennai.
These robust trucks are already being exported to Kenya, Sri Lanka, Zambia, Tanzania, Zimbabwe, Bangladesh, Brunei and Indonesia, and are now on their way to Cambodia.
While most of the current export markets demand right-hand driven vehicles, the Cambodian market requires left-hand driven vehicles.
Exports out of India
Under the umbrella of Daimler Trucks Asia, DICV and MFTBC (Mitsubishi Truck and Bus Corporation) have combined their strengths to tap into further sales potential.
While DICV focuses on the Indian market and countries such as Nepal, MFTBC will service the rising demand in the Asian and African regions with its existing portfolio of Mitsubishi-Fuso trucks from its plant in Kawasaki and the Fuso trucks produced in Oragadam.
