Mercedes-Benz Delivers For Deniliquin Freighters

Daimler Trucks Shepparton has delivered five Mercedes-Benz Actros trucks to Deniliquin Freighters – the largest delivery yet for the new key regional dealership, a part of the Tristar Group.

Deniliquin Freighters is a long-term Daimler Truck customer, operating both Freightliner Cascadia and Mercedes-Benz Actros trucks as part of its fleet.

The company has been dealing with Daimler Trucks Albury, owned and operated by Tristar Group and its leader David Warren, but now also uses the new Shepparton dealership that is closer to its Deniliquin base.

The transporter has taken delivery of five 2663 Actros models which operate an efficient 630hp 16-litre engine teamed with a 12-speed fully-automated manual transmission (AMT).

Deniliquin Freighters switched to Mercedes-Benz Actros models in 2017 and added Freightliner Cascadia models in 2021.

Managing Director Russell Tait, pictured top of page with partner Vicki Meyer, says the Actros trucks that were being replaced by the five new models had performed well.

“We’ve been really happy with them. The fuel economy has been good, the safety is always welcome and the drivers appreciate the comfort,” he says.

“The trucks are one thing, but the team behind them, the support you get once the trucks have been delivered that is just so important. Dave will answer his phone whenever you call, whether it is in the middle of the night or the middle of the day and make sure any potential issue is sorted out and that is something we really appreciate.”

Tait describes the service he receives through Daimler Trucks Albury and Daimler Trucks Shepparton as “exceptional”.

“You can’t get a better dealer than Dave, it’s that simple,” he says.

Daimler Truck Australia Pacific Sales and Marketing Vice President, Andrew Assimo, says it’s great to see more Actros trucks in the distinctive Deniliquin Freighters colours.

“We are thrilled that Russell has taken delivery of five more Mercedes-Benz trucks sold and supported by the amazing team at Daimler Trucks Shepparton,” he says.

“Deni Freighters is the kind of operation that you just love to have as an ambassador of your brand. It’s a truly professional operation that looks after its team and customers like they are family, and the trucks always look fantastic.”
