As an initial start over four hundred parts including oil, batteries, service and select wear and tear parts are available on the portal, with plans already underway to expand the product catalogue to include maintenance and collision parts, in addition to delivery of parts to customers.

“The Daimler Truck Parts Portal is a game changer in the commercial vehicle market, and we are thrilled to be part of the development team, and to be the very first Daimler Truck market in the world to launch the portal to our customers.
