UD trucks deliveries in Asia slipped by 12% with highlights in major markets including Korea, Thailand and South East Asia. The delivery in Indonesia experienced a major setback due to an economic downturn in the mining industry and challenging conditions in the global export market. However, the weak result was compensated by development in Thailand and Korea due to the rapid expansion of UD sales network in both markets. In South East Asia, the deliveries do not include the Quester that launched in 2013. However with its notable acceptance by their customers, UD Trucks expect to see significant increase in deliveries in the year ahead in the area where the first delivery of Quester was made back in December in Thailand.
