Truck drivers deliver the items we take for granted everyday, including food and medical supplies. They are the unsung heroes on the frontlines. As the world practices self-isolation to prevent the spread of COVID-19, take a moment to recognize the solitary nature of the truck driver’s daily life. Traveling long distances most often alone, to deliver the good we depend on.
UD Trucks aims to practice CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) which creates shared value for both stakeholders and the company by solving issues existing in the logistics industry and society.
The demand for transport and construction will keep growing in the future. That demand must be fulfilled while respecting the environment. In order to do this a modern and challenger outlook is needed.
We are a lean agile company who dares to challenge the status quo to transform ourselves and our industry. Modern knowhow with Japanese craftsmanship.
