Annual Dealer Awards went Virtual in 2020

Press Release | August 20, 2020
UD Trucks Southern Africa decided not to let a global pandemic get in the way of recognising our dealer’s achievements and our solution was to make the 28th Annual Dealer Conference for all the dealers in our region a virtual one.  

‘The virtual award ceremony was in keeping with our ongoing focus on bringing smarter and more modern technologies and solutions to our customers in a world with increasingly smarter logistical needs,’ said Filip Van den Heede, Managing Director of UD Trucks. “Congratulations again to all the finalists and winners. You have demonstrated that you live our values of going the extra mile, over the last year,” said Filip.  

Dealer Awards for the year 2019

The awards are calculated using a weighted-average of the performance of the sales, service, parts and finance departments of each dealership for the year 2019, using our UD Championship and Dealer of the Year competitions which consist of 34 categories for large and medium dealers in South Africa, as well as our dealers in the emerging markets.

The top Dealer of the Year awards went to:

Medium Dealer of the Year:
Reytjie Laubscher from UD Trucks Lichtenburg (South Africa)

Emerging Markets Dealer of the Year:
Nic Scholz from NTT Gabarone (Botswana)

Dealer of the Year:
