São Bernardo do Campo – Brazil's largest brewery and drinks supplier Cervejaria Ambev is making major enlargements to its fleet and has chosen trucks with the three-pointed star. A total of 228 new Mercedes-Benz trucks – 212 Atego and 16 Actros models – will help to supply beer and beverages even more efficiently and safely to thirsty customers. The robust, manoeuvrable Mercedes-Benz Atego trucks are ideal for local distribution and will reliably serve retailers. The Mercedes-Benz Actros will provide long-distance transport between breweries and major logistics centres, ensuring Brazil's supermarkets don't run dry.
The first vehicles were handed over to Ambev in September, and the other beer trucks will follow monthly until the end of the year. Part of the fleet will be equipped with Fleetboard, the innovative cargo managing system: this will save on operating costs and, at the same time, ensures that the driver and their freight arrive at the destination faster and safer.
