UD Trucks Southern Africa has announced its top dealers of 2020 and it’s a big congratulations to Motruck Swaziland on being named Emerging Markets Dealer of the Year, to UD Trucks Lichtenburg which took top honours as Medium Dealer of the Year and to McCarthy Commercial Alrode on winning the award for Large Dealer of the Year.

The 2020 UD Trucks Annual Dealer Awards celebrated the network’s top achievers for their performances during 2020. Finalists and winners were announced in 24 categories, ranging from administration to aftermarket, sales, and financial services. The most coveted awards are, of course, the Dealer of the Year accolades.

“The UD Trucks dealers did a tremendous job during 2020 in continuing to support our customers despite very challenging operating and economic conditions,” says Filip Van den Heede, Managing Director, UD Trucks Southern Africa, adding that the Dealer of the Year categories keep getting more and more competitive each year.

“Their commitment to excellence is truly inspiring and we are proud to be associated with dealers of this calibre. Throughout the region, we operate as one proud UD Trucks team,” says Van den Heede.

UD Trucks is constantly developing, strengthening, and training its already comprehensive regional dealer network. “Our 54 UD Trucks dealers across southern and Africa are always ready to support customers with manufacturer-endorsed sales, service, parts as well as financial and fleet solutions,” he says.

UD Trucks Lichtenburg took top honours as Medium Dealer of the Year. Here dealer principal, Reitjie Laubscher (centre), proudly receives his award from Rory Schulz (left), UD Trucks Southern Africa's Sales Director and Sanjay Naipal, Aftermarket Director.

“As a manufacturer, I believe we have one of the leading dealer networks in the industry who, with their vast knowledge, skills, and high service levels, are able to offer our customers simply the best support. We highly value their continuous investment in and commitment to the UD Trucks brand,” says Van Den Heede.

He adds that the UD Trucks management team is excited about the future of the brand in the region. With the addition of more Croner models earlier this year, the company now has its most extensive range ever.

FleetWatch extends huge congratulations to the winners. It was not at all an easy year and yet you continued to shine. Way to go!
