At the recent “Fleet Transport Award 2012” event held in Dublin in October, Fuso Canter Euro 5 EEV lightweight truck was named “Irish Truck of the Year 2012”. The Fleet Transport Awards are organised by “Fleet Transport”, a leading Irish transport magazine, along with a number of award sponsors.
The jury, which was made up of commercial vehicle specialists, including automotive journalists, engineers and driving instructors, based its assessment on the truck’s fuel efficiency, power-to-weight ratio, driver comfort, handling and cabin layout. A maximum of seven points awarded for each of the 12 different criteria.
The award was accepted by Mitsubishi Fuso Truck and Bus Corporation (MFTBC) at a ceremony that was attended by over 700 sector experts, particularly freight forwarders and national truck dealers.
