Expert Story

“Tough working conditions call for an easy and comfortable truck.”

Masami Ozono, product strategy and management at UD Trucks, talks about what makes the Croner ideal for the general cargo segment.

How do you define general cargo?

“We define general cargo as goods that can be carried by a delivery van. This is mainly daily commodity foods and electrical appliances – necessary things for people’s lives to function on a daily basis. Items such as food and electric appliances need to be handled carefully in transit.”

Which goods and services are UD Trucks focusing on in the segment?

“The recently growing e-commerce market is important. This can be small items that must be delivered to many different destinations within a limited timeslot.

The driver’s job is to deliver goods not only from A to B but also from A to 100 different destinations. These tough working conditions mean that operating an easy and comfortable truck becomes more important. Those drivers need their cab to function like an office, to be able to take care of their paperwork.”

Which elements make the Croner essential for general cargo transportation?

“ATM and air suspension are very important when transporting sensitive goods. ATM is particularly essential for city delivery vans. The larger cab space and fulfilling equipment supports drivers working environment".

What new benefits does the new Croner 6×2 offer to customers in the segment?

“Productivity is key. The combination of an MDT base light chassis, simple air suspension and tag axle creates a lightweight solution on which more weight and volume can be carried.”
