General cargo today

The nature of general cargo distribution is constantly changing, with a paradigm shift taking place in consumer behaviour. Whether operating long-haul, inter-city or locally, and whether transporting food, electrical appliances or mixed cargo, distribution companies have had to adapt to new trends in order to stay competitive.

With consumer confidence and the retail sector growing worldwide, and e-commerce exerting more pressure on distribution services, the need to be punctual, flexible and efficient has never been greater.

Why UD Trucks for general cargo?

UD trucks offer time-saving flexibility for all kinds of distribution assignments. The new Croner 4×2 allows customers to benefit from greatly increased payload, as well as being super-reliable and durable for any driving conditions. 

A large, comfortable cab makes for the perfect mobile office space, while automated transmission delivers greater fuel efficiency and more relaxed driving. And with our extensive service offer, we’ve got you covered. Deliver the future with UD Trucks.

Going the distance

Successful distribution means handling tough requirements on a daily basis. Getting the best out of every truck in your fleet is key. With UD trucks, heavier loads can now be carried on vehicles with more cab space. A win-win for any forward-looking business.

Expert Story

solutions-general-cargo-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.”
