90 trucks delivered to South Africa
Daimler recently handed over an impressive fleet of 90 Mercedes-Benz Actros 2645LS trucks to logistics provider Bakers in South Africa. This purchase adds to company’s current mega fleet of nearly 650 vehicles, of which all are Mercedes-Benz trucks. The partnership began when Bakers bought its first Mercedes-Benz truck in the early seventies.
Since then, the family-owned company has become one of the country’s largest independent logistics companies - with Mercedes-Benz trucks at its core.
Bakers are specialists in warehousing, primary-secondary and last-mile distribution for dedicated contracts of packaging, fast-moving consumer goods and WBG (household appliances) in South Africa and into neighbouring countries. (ben)
