FUSO moves up to the 3rd spot

Manila, Philippines — According to the recent July sales figures of the Truck Manufacturers’ Association (TMA), Sojitz Fuso Philippines Corporation (SFP), the general distributor of FUSO and one of the primary commercial vehicle distributors of brand-new trucks and buses in the Philippines hailed as Rank 3 in terms of truck and bus sales performance.

This marks the second time for FUSO to improve its sales ranking to 3rd in the TMA tally; the first was last March. In addition, FUSO showed a remarkable improvement from January to July 2022 sales performance as it expanded by 26.2% compared to the previous year, while the industry growth showed 1% — this resulted in the improvement of FUSO’s market share to 11.4%.

Another breakthrough is the segment under the Light-Duty Truck covering 4.1T to 4.5T or Category 3 under TMA segmentation; FUSO was able to penetrate 22% market share in July, which allowed the brand to climb up to the 2nd spot. Thanks to the consistent sales contribution of FUSO Canter FE71 (4W) and Canter FE73 (6W) for making this achievement possible.

FUSO inaugurates its new dedicated outlet at the City of Golden Friendship

Cagayan de Oro City, Philippines, July 25, 2022 — The Japanese distributor of the popular Canter inaugurated its new 3S (Sales, Service, and Spare Parts) outlet in Cagayan de Oro City (CDO) last Monday, 25 July 2022. FUSO Cagayan de Oro will now address the customers’ requirements by providing sales and service support to further strengthen the FUSO’s presence in Mindanao. The new outlet is a great addition to the existing network of FUSO dedicated dealerships operating under Fast Autoworld Philippines Corporation (FAPC) — an authorized dealer of Sojitz Fuso Philippines Corporation (SFP).

Strategically positioned in Purok 8-A, San Pedro, Gusa, Cagayan de Oro City, 9000 Misamis Oriental this makes it very accessible to commercial, logistics, and automotive areas in the city center. FUSO CDO is equipped with new equipment, three (3) commercial vehicle showroom displays, service workshops, and skilled sales and aftersales team to offer support to all FUSO customers in the region. FAPC has been representing FUSO in the Visayas and Mindanao with 35 years of experience.

Besides being known as a spot for relaxing activities, Cagayan de Oro is also tagged as the City of Golden Friendship because of the utmost hospitality and smiles of the people of CDO, or what we called Kagay-anons who offer a warm welcome to tourists. It is no wonder the city has become a destination for foreign visitors.

Cagayan de Oro City is experiencing rapid economic development in Mindanao. Surrounded by commerce, trade, information technology, and automotive businesses, CDO is a growth driver of Mindanao as the city continues to grow.

“FUSO as one of the leading brands in the trucks and bus industry, will be relentless in giving customers products that radiate durability, reliability, and sustainability and offer the best value for money.

Speaking on the inauguration, Mr. Noriyuki Sekita, Executive Vice President – Sales and Marketing, SFP said, “FUSO has continued to expand its network since establishing its operations. Our on-going plans for dealer expansion will enable us to serve our current and new customers better, to deliver the standards of high-quality service moving forward. These are very inspiring times for FUSO, and we are very proud to be part of this journey with our dealer partners.”

FUSO stands out at the 2022 Manila Commercial Vehicle Show

Pasay City, Philippines, July 9, 2022 — For this year’s Manila Commercial Vehicle Show, Sojitz Fuso Philippines Corporation (SFP), the general distributor of FUSO and one of the Philippines’ primary commercial vehicle distributors of brand-new trucks and buses, exhibited Class 2 and Class 3 Modern PUVs together with the Canter FE71 with Aluminum Van Body at the SMX Convention Center in Pasay City last July 7 – 9, 2022.

To meet the growing demand and expand its market in Metro Manila, the FUSO light-duty trucks and modern PUVs promise world-class performance, reliability, durability, and maximum business returns, suited for logistics, supply chains, and transport cooperatives.

“As Senator, I have called on the Department of Transportation (DOTr) to expand the contracting service program, to help public utility vehicle (PUV) drivers and operators secure their jobs as well as guarantee that fares in public transport will remain affordable,” says Hon. Risa Hontiveros, Senator, Republic of the Philippines.

As the government continues to strengthen the program of PUV modernization, many transport cooperatives still have concerns that they would like to discuss with specific authorities, making the Manila Commercial Vehicle Show an excellent platform to thresh out concerns regarding the transition of traditional jeepneys to modern vehicles.  

The 3-day show consists of different co-located events from each day. National Truckers Assembly commenced on Day 1, discussing the trucks offered by the brands, specifications, and market performance. SFP presented the F-Wing, a 32 ft. Wing Van Body mounted on the robust FJ 2528R chassis.

Day 2 focused on PUVMP-Jeep Forum and Bus Operators Assembly; SFP showcased the brand’s modern PUVs Canter Commute (Class 2) and Canter Express (Class 3) displayed in the FUSO booth.

The organizer (833 Marketing) also invited the North Luzon Expressway (NLEX) and Subic-Clark-Tarlac Expressway (SCTEX) Metro Pacific Tollways to promote safe driving and vehicle preventive maintenance as well as organize fun activities that instill safety among participants.

FUSO has a wide presence across the Philippines to assist transport cooperatives with their modern PUV requirements. SFP encouraged transport cooperatives nationwide to switch to safer, reliable, and more convenient modernized PUVs.

FUSO Philippines joins Commercial Vehicle Show in the Culinary Capital of the Philippines

Clark, Pampanga, March 31, 2022 — As we continue the drive for PUV Modernization, Sojitz Fuso Philippines Corporation (SFP), the general distributor of FUSO and one of the Philippines’ primary commercial vehicle distributors of brand-new trucks and buses participated once again at the Clark Commercial Vehicle Show held last March 31 to April 1, 2022, at Fontana Leisure Parks & Casino, Clark, Pampanga with the theme, “Transport Cooperatives Transformation towards the New Normal”.

Considered as the Philippines’ Culinary Capital, Pampanga offers more than just a great introduction to Filipino food. Just a couple of hours away from Manila, Pampanga is also classified as a first-class and highly urbanized city surrounded with industries from automotive and agricultural businesses to forestry. SFP believes that the introduction of the FUSO modern PUVs to the city will help transport cooperatives in showcasing the efficient, safe, and accessible modern transportation system.

“This is a very timely event, given all the issues that our public transport system is facing at the moment – from the shift to the PUV Modernization Program, the continuation of the challenges of this pandemic, and skyrocketing price of fuel all over, I am very hopeful that this congress will help us all figure out what our next steps should be moving forward in order to best support the public transport sector through these issues. To that end, we have filed the Public Utility Vehicle Modernization Program Act and the Transportation Cooperatives Development Loan Fund Act to enable our transport cooperatives to effectively modernize.” says Sen. Juan Miguel Zubiri.

This program of the national government is a comprehensive system reform that can entirely change the Public Land Transportation system. As the country works toward economic recovery, the Clark Commercial Vehicle Show is a good venue to discuss the issues and concerns of transport cooperatives that support the shift to PUV modernization.

Part of the event program is a presentation of the brand’s modern PUV. SFP showcased the powerful performance, reliability, and durability of both FUSO Canter Commute (Class II) and FUSO Canter Express (Class III).

Sojitz Fuso Philippines Corporation Assistant Manager for Product Planning, Ms. Nolyn Mae de Guzman presented the FUSO Class II and Class III Modern PUVs from specifications, interior and exterior body, accessories and vehicle certification.

Moving forward, SFP is committed to tie-up with more transport cooperatives in support of the Philippines’ PUVMP. SFP believes that FUSO products can meet the goal of a more sustainable public transportation system for the country.
