Mitsubishi Fuso Truck of America, Inc. (MFTA) has consolidated a significant portion of its medium-duty truck inventory at its port facilities in Baltimore, where it can be delivered immediately to its dealers across the affected states to aid in Hurricane Sandy relief efforts.
The available trucks include FUSO Canter road-ready commercial trucks with van bodies, as well as cab-chassis vehicles that can be upfitted with any necessary vocational body.
“We know many businesses and organizations have lost trucks in the recent disaster — trucks they need to get back on their feet delivering their products and services,” said Todd Bloom, President and CEO of MFTA. “In addition, trucks will be needed to haul away debris and to supply the rebuilding effort. We are fortunate to have in port facilities, vehicles available that suit this particular duty very well. We are in the process now of assessing the needs and making the necessary arrangements to consolidate inventory in our port facilities in Baltimore for rapid deployment to our dealers across the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast.”
As part of its normal business operations, the company already had fourth-quarter incentives in place that include 1.7% APR financing for 36 months for trucks in its dealers’ inventory, with no payment due for 90 days. It will extend its financing incentives and other quarterly incentive programs to include trucks ordered from its port facilities as part of this program from now through December 31, 2013.
