UD Trucks Southern Africa has added three new trucks to its Quester range – a rigid 4×2, a rigid 6×2 and a 6×4 dedicated compactor chassis.

Gert Swanepoel, acting vice-president of UD Trucks Southern Africa, says the company’s strategy of promoting the Quester in rigid segments such as construction and waste has proved successful. “Accordingly, we are expanding the strategy,” he says.

Outside of Japan, UD Trucks Southern Africa forms the largest market for the brand. Recently launched in Ethiopia, the Quester range is likely to be introduced in other southern and eastern African markets within the next year.

“With the support from our parent company we are excited about the future success of UD Trucks within the region,” says Swanepoel.
