TRUCK MANUFACTURERS

Leading Truck Manufacturers

In truck stops, at the docks, in warehouse loading areas, in cafes and bars – the debate continues as to which are the best truck manufacturers. Many owners and drivers are loyal to their favourite badge, purchasing the same brand over and over while other operators like to set up their fleet with a range of vehicles from different manufacturers.

Australia is fortunate to have many of the world’s leading truck manufacturers based here with first rate support and maintenance services.
