Why UD Trucks for general cargo?

Expert Story

“We provide solutions with our trucks and services to better address today’s industry challenges”

Ryotaro Takagi, Director, Key Account Management talks about what our products bring to the general cargo segment.

In your rich experience, you may have seen the evolution of the trucking industry. Could you share with us what you have seen now vs 10 years ago?

In the past decade, emerging markets went through a massive economic development as well as modernization. We have also started to see improved infrastructure, tighter governmental regulations and more concerns on safety and environment. We also see a massive rise in e-commerce and cold chain distribution. A family may go shopping online instead of visiting the mall on the weekend, which was not common 10years ago.

In your opinion, what are the current business challenges for customers and how does UD Trucks address these challenges? 
Many companies have started to consider safety, environment and societal issues. At the same time, businesses are experiencing lack of drivers to meet logistical demands. Increasingly many countries have enforced stricter weight regulations and driver compliance. These are challenges that we address by providing trucks with higher fuel efficiency, productivity and safety features.

What makes our models suitable for this segment? What are some of the keyfeatures of these trucks that make them suitable for our customers?
Our strength lies in the fact that we have models that are designed for different markets and customer needs. Recently, it has become challenging and costly for customers to find highly skilled drivers, who can fully maneuver manual transmission fuel efficiently. For instance, New Quester with ESCOT benefits our customers as it is easy to drive and fuel efficient. In addition, all our models offer various configurations and wheelbase options, which allow us to provide specifications that customers really need. I strongly believe this is how we can provide trucks that go the extra mile.

What essential support can we provide toour customers?
Highly skilled mechanics that provide quality services. UD Trucks has operations in more than 53 countries with dense network to provide high quality services to ensure that our customers businesses run smoothly.
