Freightliner Trucks introduced the Freightliner Frameworks Truck Equipment Manufacturers program at the 2013 NTEA Work Truck Show. This new initiative complements the company’s overall strategy to develop solutions for truck equipment manufacturers (TEM) that make the upfitting process as efficient as possible.
The Frameworks program provides members a comprehensive suite of services and tools geared toward vocational body builders, including online and onsite training, 3D chassis layouts, updated Freightliner body builder books, a dedicated chassis upfit hotline for truck equipment manufacturers, co-marketing opportunities, industry-leading financing packages through Daimler Truck Financial including wholesale and retail end customer financing, and more.
“The goal of the Frameworks package is to strengthen our partnership with truck equipment manufacturers, saving them time and most importantly money, ultimately resulting in savings seen by the end-users,” said Mary Aufdemberg, director of product marketing for Freightliner Trucks. “Freightliner Trucks will continue to provide truck equipment manufacturers innovative solutions like the Frameworks program to meet the requirements of their customers.”
Frameworks is the latest solution from Freightliner Trucks geared towards TEMs. From durable cabs, a wide array of axle and framerail ratings, a number of PTO choices, the SmartPlex electrical system, and packaging options that allow for clean back-of-cab installations, Freightliner Trucks makes it easier to spec trucks for any vocational application.
