For the launch of the Extra Mile Stories campaign, two stories from Japan were selected:
- Condor: Titled “4 reasons why Condor is safe and comfortable” the story explores the challenges of a UD Trucks’ customer and how the safety and comfort of the Condor medium-duty truck contributes to meet these challenges, as told by company executives and a driver. A UD Trucks lead developer explains how UD engineers have gone the extra mile to contribute to safety and comfort from a product development point of view.
- Quon: Under the theme “4 reasons why Quon is perfect” the president and a driver of another UD Trucks customer explain how the new Quon truck meets their needs for fuel efficiency, safety, loading capacity and drivability. A UD Trucks lead developer explains the development of the new Quon and how they achieved improved quality of transport.
The next Extra Mile Stories from Japan will cover “Fuel Efficiency" and "ESCOT-V", UD Trucks’ leading automated manual gearbox. Future Extra Mile Stories will also include overseas UD customers and products.
UD Trucks President, Yoshihiro Murakami commented that, "Through the Extra Mile Stories Campaign, we expect to build a deeper relationship with our customers and be trusted more than ever in the transportation industry. By listening to candid customer voices, we are able to refocus our mindset which motivates us even more to continue to meet our customers’ expectations and provide them with the best products and services.”
80 years ago, founder Kenzo Adachi had a vision to create “the truck the world needs today”. During this year’s 80th anniversary, UD Trucks inaugurated the new UD Experience Center and the new UD Trucks headquarters in Ageo. Through the Extra Mile Stories Campaign and by continuing to provide solutions to today’s logistic industry needs, UD Trucks aims to support the transport industry in line with the company’s current vision “Going the Extra Mile for Smart Logistics”.
