The wholly-owned Daimler commercial vehicles subsidiary Daimler Trucks North America (DTNA) is celebrating the production of its three-millionth vehicle in Cleveland. The anniversary truck Freightliner Cascadia Evolution is going into customer operations at 'Schneider', one of
the largest logistics and transportation service companies in North America with around 80 years of business history.

Schneider's fleet of over 25,000 Freightliner trucks will now be supple-mented by the jubilee truck.The Freightliner Cascadia Evolution is equipped with the completely integrated drivetrain of the Detroit component brand including the fully automated DT12 transmission.

The flagship model is setting new standards for savings of operating costs. Compared to its EPA 2010-conformant predecessor model the Freightliner Cascadia Evolution achieves up to seven per cent higher fuel efficiency.

"The integrated drivetrain from Detroit is a prime example of the pioneering spirit and innovation power that have made Freightliner the undisputed market leader in the North American commercial vehicles industry," said Martin Daum, President & CEO, Daimler Trucks North America.
