Sustainable truck transport requires care for environment, safety and drivers
Of all domestically transported goods, freight transported by truck makes up about 90 percent when measured in tons, and about 50 percent in ton-kilometers. The logistics industry is committed to meeting increasingly tough environmental regulations, enhance safety measures, and improve truck drivers’ work environments in order to fulfill its mission to provide infrastructure critical to Japanese society and its economy.
Quon is a new solution to the logistics industry’s challenges.
The concept is “Innovation that puts people first.”
In April 2017, UD Trucks launched the all-new heavy-duty Quon truck. We applied UD Trucks’ own innovations to the development of the all-new Quon not just to meet the latest emission standards, but to offer a solution to diverse challenges that the logistics industry faces. By “UD Trucks’ own innovations,” we mean more than a technological novelty. As a manufacturer of production goods that forms a part of logistics, we strive to propose products and services that create new universal value for customers, society, and the environment. UD Trucks’ history is synonymous with the history of the company’s efforts toward the evolution of safe, efficient, green, and sustainable transport solutions. It is represented by the inter-vehicle distance warning system (Traffic Eye) we adopted before most competitors across the world; the electronically controlled transmission “ESCOT” that is highly operable and fuel-efficient; and the flagship heavy-duty Quon truck equipped with the world’s first urea SCR system.
