Expert Story

Mikito

“Given the current market situation for our customers, both Quester and Croner are perfectly suited to this environment.”

Maruyama Mikito, Senior Product Manager UD Trucks MEENA talks about what the Quester and Croner bring to waste management assignments.

Can you begin by identifying any current trends within waste management?

Our customers are under major cost pressure to get their contracts renewed for bigger areas with much tighter budgets. This forces them to look at any possible ways of reducing costs without compromising on the uptime and availability of their truck. Waste management is a very demanding and severe application, as some of the trucks operate 24 hours a day 7 days a week. The trucks are used for the cleaning of residential areas and hence cannot stop working.

What do you see being most important to provide for your customers?

We offer the simple features that are needed by our customers without making them pay for features that they do not need . In this way we can say that we excel on the essentials.
Longer service intervals are very important to our customers who are looking to maximize their uptime. With strong support from local partners, we offer driver and technician trainings, service contracts and other support.

Which UD trucks are most important and relevant to the waste management sector?
A variety of applications are used in our markets, such as compactors, vacuum and water tankers, bin washers, hook lifts, skip loaders, road sweepers and tipper trucks. Quester and Croner are our top two. Both trucks offer durability, reliability, easy body installation, fuel efficiency and versatility.
