Trucks are well-known as a mean of transport of goods or heavy stocks and therefore serves mostly industrial purposes.
Trucks are also fabricated by the innovative brand Mercedes Benz. Mercedes is lead by the Daimler AG, which is now merged with the Daimler-Benz-AG and the american Chrysler Corporation.
Just like the truck itself, the Daimler AG also has a long history. The company was founded by the german engineer Gottlieb Daimler together with Wilhelm Lorenz. Formerly known as the Daimler-Motoren-Gesellschaft, nowadays the company is called Daimler-Benz AG.

The first truck designed by Daimler

Gottlieb Daimler also developed the first motorized truck in 1886. It was called “Phoenix” and resembled more a curricle, because the driver had to sit outside and it could only drive up top 16 km/h.
Today’s trucks differ a lot to the first construction by Gottlieb Daimler. The maximum payload of “Phoenix” were 1,5 tons while current trucks are capable of carrying up to 40 tons. In Sweden and Denmark are also vehicles used which even can carry up to 60 tons. Dependent on the maximum payload, in Europe you need to have a special drivers licence to be permitted to drive larger trucks.

Real-time delivery and reliable transportation

Utility vehicles are an essential mean of transport for goods and equipment. No other transportation offers a realtime delivery and is an advertisment medium at the same time.
That is the reason why the Gottlieb Daimler AG besides the manufacturing of passenger vehicles also is specialized to fabricate utility vehicles. Since 1965 the most important manufacturing base of Mercedes trucks is in Wörth am Rhein. Every current Mercedes truck series like Actros, Unimog, Atego, Econic, Zetros und Axor, is built at Wörth am Rhein.
