More volume and weight
All the credentials for the best possible productivity are found in this vehicle. The Croner 6×2 is an easily adaptable lightweight truck. It is able to carry more volume and weight because of its medium base lightweight chassis plus tag axle. In a segment as competitive as general cargo, the potential to carry more goods and increase the number of deliveries per journey will help customers to get one step ahead of their rivals.

Sensitive goods safely transported
Air suspension and automatic transmission on the Croner 6×2 make a huge difference when carrying sensitive products.The nature of urban deliveries involves much stopping and starting, which can naturally damage goods in transit. No gear changing and a more stable truck mean that a smoother drive is made possible, allowing cargo to reach its destination intact.

Easier driving for all
In an industry currently battling the effects of driver shortage, the ability to create easier driving can contribute significantly to attracting new talent. Automatic transmission is a great leveller in this respect, enabling drivers of all ages and experience to achieve better safety and improved fuel efficiency. Businesses can benefit from a more even and consistent quality of driving, not to mention the shorter time it takes to train new drivers using an automatic gearbox.

More comfort, better safety
With a 2.3 meter wide cab, the Croner 6×2 provides more space and greater comfort on all journeys. Increased width also means better visibility and safety for drivers and everyone in the truck’s vicinity. The wider cab also makes for an ideal office on the road.
Safety is of course paramount in all UD trucks, and an air suspension dump switch on the Croner 6×2 lowers chassis height and allows for safer and easier loading of all types and weights of general cargo. An additional bonus with the truck’s tag axle is that can be lifted when the truck is empty. This has the twin positive effects of saving fuel and wear on tyres. 

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.
