  • Stuttgart/Hanover, Sep 24, 2010 - "The total performance of a truck must be right," is the summary of Joachim Fehrenkötter, head of Fehrenkötter Transport & Logistik GmbH, at the conclusion of his three-year fleet test with seven truck brands.

That is why the overall winner in the "total performance" category is Mercedes-Benz Actros. At the same time the Actros took second place in operating cost accounting.
