As part of the first wave of export-markets DICV-made Fuso trucks are already exported to markets like Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Indonesia, Kenya, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Tanzania and Brunei. The new Fuso trucks have been well received by customers', due to the already established robust Fuso distribution and service network. DICV will also start manufacturing medium-duty Fuso LHD vehicles subsequently later this year to address the wider market.
