Home Manufacturing & Processing Automotive Market leader in trucks expresses gratitude

THE Automotive Business Council, NAAMSA, recently released the 2023 new vehicle statistics and for the fourth consecutive year, Mercedes-Benz Trucks claimed the market leader position for heavy commercial vehicles reaffirming why the Mercedes-Benz Actros won the NAAMSA Extra-Heavy Commercial Vehicle of the Year award in 2023. The Arocs range for construction and distribution, significantly grew its unit sales in 2023 compared to the previous year. This once again indicates that the construction industry is regaining momentum and that the Arocs, focusing on reduced maintenance cost for customers, is a force to be reckoned with.

“In a market where customers are spoiled for choice, we are beyond grateful for our customers who trust Mercedes-Benz Trucks to support their businesses. We thank you for your business. In addition, I would like to commend our dealers and general distributors for their ongoing efforts to support our customers across our entire value chain. We are positive that the heavy commercial vehicle market will remain strong and look forward to further serving our customers in 2024,” said Maretha Gerber, vice president: sales and marketing, Daimler Truck Southern Africa.
