Stuttgart / Moscow – DAIMLER KAMAZ RUS (DK RUS), the Joint Venture between Daimler Trucks and its Russian partner KAMAZ, has received a large order from the Russian construction company Partner Group. The customer already owns 71 Mercedes-Benz trucks and now adds 100 brand new Mercedes-Benz Arocs 4142B to update its fleet of construction vehicles. 30 trucks have already been handed over since April at the Dealership in Moscow, the rest will follow until the end of the year. All Mercedes-Benz Arocs trucks are equipped with the Fleetboard telematics solution, which helps to monitor the fleet and to analyze its efficiency. With the handover of the first vehicles to Partner Group, the company’s drivers also received special driver trainings offered by Mercedes-Benz Trucks specialists.  

Thanks to the great cooperation between the Partner Group and Mercedes-Benz Trucks Russia throughout the last seven years, Partner Group decided to switch its entire fleet to Mercedes-Benz trucks only. The company appreciates the high quality standards of the trucks, which have proven themselves as extremely reliable and robust. With Partner Group, the heavy-duty trucks will be in charge for the delivery of ready-mixed concrete for customers’ sites, as well as for different work purposes on construction sites. Other reasons for Partner Group to trust once again in Mercedes-Benz Trucks are the excellent service network and the support provided by Mercedes-Benz Trucks dealers whenever it is necessary.
