DGL receives its latest Quon in a special handover with UD Trucks Corporation Chairman

Handover of a brand-new UD Quon to DGL

UD Trucks Australia recently hosted a particularly special event, which saw the handover of a brand-new UD Quon to customer DGL, with UD Trucks Corporation Chairman, Koichi Ito, and key UD International Sales (UDIS) representatives.  

Aaron Bardell, DGL Director & General Manager ANZ, was in attendance and received the latest Quon CD curtainsider and a bespoke co-branded pylon to commemorate the occasion.  

Being a key provider of diversified full-service logistics solutions across Australia, DGL rely on UD Trucks and UD Service Contracts to keep their trucks moving nationwide, and this latest unit will be key to supporting its Queensland operations. In the past two years alone, DGL have taken delivery of 12 UD Quons to support their growing services and have more in the pipeline for 2024. 

“It's both a privilege and a testament to the strength of our partnership with DGL to witness the handover of their latest Quon alongside our Chairman, Koichi Ito,” said Philippa Wood, Vice President UD Trucks Australia.  

“DGL's continued trust in UD Trucks and our Total Solutions, speaks to the reliability and quality of our vehicles and the capability of our VGA dealer network. We are proud to be a part of DGL's journey and look forward to continuing our partnership." 


Following the handover, UD Trucks Australia continued to host Ito-san, as well as key UDIS guests in the days proceeding, including:  

Jacques Michel – Senior Vice President International Sales 

Fabrice Gorlier – Deputy at UD Trucks International Sales 

Laurent Lyonnet – Vice President, Aftermarket & Network Development 

Johan Kleinsteuber – Vice President, Vehicle Sales & Marketing 

“This visit to Australia marks the first for Ito-san as Chairman of UD Trucks Corporation and our soon to be Senior Vice President of UD International Sales, Fabrice Gorlier. So, it was a very timely opportunity to showcase our fantastic people, sites & operations in action, and to introduce some incredible advocates for the UD Brand across both the customer and dealer network.”
