The Daimler Board of Management made the following personnel decision today: Effective August 1, 2013, Sven Ennerst (49) will take on global responsibility for the development department at Daimler Trucks. Ennerst will succeed Georg Weiberg (65), who will retire after working for Daimler for more than 40 years.
Daimler promises its commercial vehicle customers a one-stop comprehensive service deal. The four service areas are on show together at the "transport logistic" 2013 fair in Munich. Representatives from the Mercedes-Benz Bank, Mercedes-Benz CharterWay, Daimler FleetBoard and Mercedes-Benz Global Service & Parts will be on hand in hall 6A to talk shop with logistics professionals, fleet owners and drivers. The fair is to run from 4 to 7 June.
The future new growth markets are already a reality for Daimler´s Commercial Vehicles division. Daimler Trucks has set the course for further growth in promising markets in Asia and Africa with its integrated business model “Asia Business Model”.
The Japanese Daimler-subsidiary, Mitsubishi Fuso Truck and Bus Corporation (MFTBC), is progressing towards its target with the “FUSO 2015” growth strategy. In the medium term, annual sales of 200,000 trucks and buses of the Fuso brand are to be sold in international markets. The large order for 140 Fuso light-duty trucks by Coca-Cola in Egypt can thus be credited to the growth campaign.
The Mercedes-Benz Actros 1851 GigaSpace is the most eco-friendly commercial vehicle of 2013. The Euro VI-compliant truck made a direct impact in what was just its first year on the road thanks to its low fuel consumption, as proven last year in these independent vehicle tests.
