The use of trucks to transport things over long distances is very common everywhere in the world. Given the long distance and bad terrain that some of these truck drivers go through, fatigue is a very common complaint. It has therefore been the desire of many truck drivers that technology is used to make their driving experience less punishing and more enjoyable. While most truck manufacturers have improved their products over time, there aren’t that many vehicle manufacturers that have been very keen on customer satisfaction as UD Trucks Corporation has been. The company has established itself as the best Japanese prime mover manufacturer in Australia. This recognition is no accident at all as the company has a mantra – going the extra mile.
In the spirit of going the extra mile the company ensures that there is quality and reliability in its Japanese prime movers. UD Trucks’ Japanese prime movers have even gained some industry recognition. The GW 26 420 Quon is currently regarded as the best prime mover in Australia. The truck has an incredible smooth drive with a 39-ton single trailer configuration. UD Trucks has also cleverly integrated the new GH11 Engine along with an ESCOT V transmission to add to its power and performance.
From the recruitment of its employees, the vetting of its vendors and raw materials, the acquisition of machinery, the design and product development of its products, the manufacturing of its trucks, the distribution as well as the usage of these trucks. It is little wonder that the company has retained its position as the manufacturer of the best Japanese prime mover.
Recognizing the importance of providing quality at an affordable cost, the company uses efficient processes that result in little to no waste and cost savings. The costs savings are in turn passed down to the customer that will enjoy quality trucks without having to pay and arm and a leg. The production efficiencies also ensure that the company is able to mass produce in a short time and can fill orders quickly. The company is also able to personalize the truck by making some modification based on the customer preference.
The company has come up with some very unique and revolutionary concepts in as far as the Australia prime mover industry is concerned. The GW470 prime mover is one in the latest products that they have launched in the market. These new trucks have a focus on fuel efficiency and reduction of carbon and particulate matter emissions. This is in addition to better performance comfort and engine strength. While still maintaining safety and quality standards, the company is not afraid to be a pioneer in using new technology in its trucks. The company has been able to achieve all these through significant investment in research and development as well as employee training.
In addition to investment in research and development, the company invests in market research to get customer feedback of its products as well as gain an understanding of what the market is looking for. The Market research team works hand-in -hand with the product managers and the technical people in order to ensure that customer views are incorporated in the products that the company produces. This close relationship between marker research and product development ensures that the company is able to direct its research and development activities towards providing greater customer satisfaction.
