Fuso announced that the Truong Hai Auto Corporation (Thaco) has donated 126 Canter trucks to the national vaccination drive in the battle against the COVID-19 pandemic.
Thaco is a general distributor of Fuso products in Vietnam and has donated 63 units of the 11,000-lb Canter truck for vaccination transport, and another 63 units of the 14,000-lb Canter truck to be used as mobile vaccination and testing centers.
The light-duty trucks were produced in the Fuso plant in Kawasaki, Japan, and assembled by Thaco in its Quang Nam Province plant in central Vietnam.
Fuso vehicles will be operated around the country to meet the government’s goal of vaccinating 80% of the population by June 2022.
Thaco has also provided local municipalities with funds and medical supplies such as disinfectants, gloves, protective gear, and testing kits.
Thaco was established in 1997 and now has a distribution network of 33 outlets. The company became the exclusive wholesale distributor and local assembly partner for Fuso products in 2017.
