Daimler Truck Albury.

An Albury dealership has taken out the prestigious Daimler Truck Australia Pacific Dealer of the Year Award for 2022.

At a gala event held in Melbourne this week, Daimler Trucks Albury was honoured for the way it had reinvigorated the Mercedes-Benz, Freightliner and Fuso brands in its region.

Daimler Truck President and CEO, Daniel Whitehead, presented the award to Daimler Truck Albury Dealer Principal, David Warren.

“Daimler Trucks Albury represents a remarkable success story, having thrived since David Warren and the team took hold of the reigns in early 2020,” he said.

“A highly respected local, David leads a highly motivated team [and] raised customer support to remarkable levels,” Whitehead continued, before acknowledging Daimler Trucks Albury as a clearly deserving winner.

The Daimler Trucks Albury team is the sister store to another successful dealership in a key freight corridor: Daimler Trucks Wagga.

Both Daimler Trucks Albury and Daimler Trucks Wagga recently achieved Elite Support certification, a dealership initiative that delivers the highest levels of customer experience.

“We know our Daimler Truck customers really appreciate the outstanding support delivered by these two dealership teams,” said Whitehead.

Daimler Trucks Albury also took out the Mercedes-Benz Trucks Regional Dealer of the Year and Freightliner Regional Dealer of the Year awards.

The Fuso Regional Dealer of the Year Award was presented to Daimler Trucks Sunshine Coast, while the Fuso Metro Dealer of the year Award was awarded to Sydney’s STM Trucks and Machinery.

Daimler Trucks Gold Coast won the Mercedes-Benz Trucks Metro Dealer of the Year, while Daimler Trucks Perth was announced as the winner of the Freightliner Metro Dealer of the Year.
