Mitsubishi Fuso Moving Inventory To Make Trucks Available for Hurricane Sandy Relief

Denise Rondini November 12, 2012

Mitsubishi Fuso Truck of America, Inc. (MFTA) has announced that it has consolidated a significant portion of its medium-duty truck inventory at its port facilities in Baltimore, where they 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.

According to Todd Bloom, President and CEO of MFTA, “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. 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 4th Quarter incentives in place that include 1.7 percent 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.
