A team of executives from Daimler Trucks and Mercedes-Benz Brazil visited customers in the interior of the state of Minas Gerais, reaffirming the company’s commitment: “Roads speak. Mercedes-Benz listens. ”
The board members drove a truck fleet made of Actros and Axor models along 450 km of roads last November. As a result, they learned not only on the specifics of the trucks themselves, but also the reality of transportation in the CBMM mining, in Araxá, and in the sugar cane activity of the Santo Ângelo Plant, in Uberaba.
“The participation of board members from Daimler Trucks made this visit to customers even more special. They were able to get to know on the spot transport operations in sectors that have been driving the resumption of growth in the Brazilian economy, which should fuel truck sales in 2018,” says Philipp Schiemer, president of Mercedes-Benz Brazil and CEO Latin America. Among Daimler Trucks executives were Stefan Buchner, Mercedes-Benz Trucks world leader; Prof. Uwe Baake, World Head of Development at Mercedes-Benz Trucks; and Dr. Frank Reintjes, World Head of Aggregates.
