FREIGHTLINERFreightliner is a key unit in Daimler Trucks Australia. Fully imported to Australia from manufacturing plants in North America. Freightliner was acquired by Daimler-Benz in 1981 and entered the Australian market in 1989 with trucks specifically engineered and tailored to meet Australian conditions. In Australia, Freightliner trucks have been developed for our heavier, bigger, faster and hotter operating environments and offer the engines, gearboxes, axles and suspension systems trusted by Australian operators. Freightliner marked its 75th anniversary in 2017. While its history is integral to the brand, Freightliner remains future-focused. A continuing emphasis on quality through innovation intersects perfectly with our ongoing, technologically inspired, passionate drive to create the best-of-the-best trucks on the road. Australian Freightliner owners know the Freightliner name is not just a badge on the grille; it represents a total network of customer support Australia-wide. When you’re talking trucks, there’s one important fact to remember. You won’t get better than Freightliner.
