The Actros range for construction and distribution, significantly grew its unit sales in 2023 compared with the previous year. This once again indicates that the construction industry is regaining momentum and that the Actros, which is focusing on reduced maintenance costs for customers, is a force to be reckoned with.

We are positive that the heavy commercial vehicle market will remain strong, and we look forward to further serving our customers in 2024,” says Maretha Gerber, Vice President Sales and Marketing, Daimler Truck Southern Africa.
