UD Trucks to arrive in Kingdom

Japan-based UD Trucks Corporation is planning on selling its new heavy duty transport vehicle, the 2013 UD Quester, in Cambodia.

“UD Trucks will launch in Cambodia soon with the 2013 UD Quester. We also hope to have nice corporation partners in our business,” UD Trucks senior vice president Loic Mellinand said.

Mellinand added that “at the moment in Cambodia, the market to sell UD truck products is small. But I’m optimistic that in the future it will be better.”

The trucks are used in on- and off-road driving, mining, construction, distribution and long-haul transportation.

Volvo Group-owned UD Trucks also launched the latest versions of the UD Quon, UD Fuel Demonstrator, UD Quester and Volvo FH at the Tokyo Motor Show 2013 last month.

Among other features, the Quester comes with a computer system providing constant analysis of gear, engine revolution and speed to drivers.
