24 hours a day — the Fuso Call Center that the Mitsubishi Fuso Truck and Bus Corporation (MFTBC) opened in 2010 is available to customers around the clock. Service at Fuso has also been improved by the Vehicle Delivery Management (VDM) system introduced in 2012. The system enables vehicles with a two-month production time to be delivered up to two weeks earlier. Moreover, because MFTBC vehicles can be configured directly at dealerships, sales staff can notify customers of the scheduled delivery date when they place their orders. In 2013, Fuso also launched its “Fuso integrated total support” (Fits) project to improve its customer service even further.
