Mitsubishi Fuso Truck of America, Inc. (MFTA) has announced that it is increasing the versatility of end-user applications for its line of Canter FE Series work trucks by partnering with Supreme Corp. to offer the StepSaver body.
The StepSaver body provides safe, convenient curb-side access to the cargo area through a low-step entry near the front passenger side of the body. With either the available roll-up or sliding pocket-style door, the interior space remains clear and completely available for cargo.
By combining the StepSaver body with a FUSO Canter FE Series medium-duty truck, the operator enjoys the benefits of the Canter truck’s lower cost-of-ownership, remarkable fuel efficiency and superior payload, as well as convenient, safe access to cargo. In addition, because the cargo area is separate from the driving environment, the driver benefits from the quiet, comfortable working environment of the FUSO Canter cab, which may help to reduce driver fatigue.
Todd Bloom, MFTA’s President and CEO, notes, “We have had a strong working relationship with Supreme for years. And we’re very pleased to be offering this additional choice to our dealers and customers in an effort to expand end-user applications for our Canter trucks. We’re confident this combination will appeal to many customers who are looking to lower the cost of their truck transport operations, while improving the efficiency of their loading and unloading.”
The new StepSaver body option will be available through the FUSO dealer network throughout the U.S. For more information about the FUSO Canter, visit www.mitfuso.com or contact your local Mitsubishi Fuso dealer. For more information about the Supreme StepSaver, go to www.supremecorp.com.
