Freightliner is a key unit in Mercedes-Benz New Zealand's commercial vehicle activities. A wholly owned division of Daimler AG, Freightliner trucks are fully imported to New Zealand from manufacturing plants in North America.

New Zealand Freightliner owners know the Freightliner name is not just a badge on the grille, it represents a total network of customer support New Zealand wide.

Freightliner was acquired by Daimler-Benz New Zealand in 1981 and entered the New Zealand market in 1994 with trucks specifically engineered and tailored to New Zealand conditions. In New Zealand, Freightliner Trucks have been developed for our heavier, bigger, faster and hotter operating environments and offer the engines, gearboxes, axles and suspension systems trusted by New Zealand operators.

Freightliner’s market leadership has come from offering the best of American and European technology, developed using the most advanced computer-aided design systems and safety programs in the world.
