For our customers, smart logistics means providing sustainable, safe and profitable transport. At UD Trucks, our role is to support our customers in their efforts to deliver smart logistics. To do this, we have identified the 3 essential areas in all of our customers’ businesses: (1) further improvement in fuel efficiency and minimum environmental impact, (2) outstanding drivability and safety, and (3) high uptime and productivity. We are keeping up with changing times, and support the success of our customers’ business.In 1935 our founder, Kenzo Adachi, had a vision “to make the trucks the world needs today”. Since this moment, we have pursued this vision by going the extra mile to listen to our customers and to respond to developing societies.In the late 1950s and 1960s, we created the UD engines and 6TW, Japan’s first 10 ton truck, which helped to build the infrastructure you see today. In the 1990s, we reacted to growing environmental and safety concerns, with innovations such as the ESCOT-AT, Traffic Eye and GE13 engine. In 2004, we introduced the Quon, which took the lead with the world’s first SCR system, delivering first class fuel efficiency and having minimum environmental impact.
For 80 years, UD Trucks has taken the lead with developments that our customers and their businesses needed most to support them to go “extra mile”. Today, the world needs more than just a truck. Today, the world needs a fuel-efficient truck that delivers sustainable and profitable transport. Today, the world needs an ultimately safe truck that is easy and comfortable to drive. Today, the world needs a truck that is highly reliable and productive, and comes with smart and modern aftermarket and uptime support.
We summarize what the world needs today as “smart logistics”. Our vision is to connect the latest technologies to support our customers so that they deliver safe, productive and efficient logistics every single day. At the Tokyo Motor Show, along with our latest technologies, you can witness our efforts to create a new future through the realization of the smart logistics.
