As the award season swings into action  with the Golden Globes and the Grammies having been handed out and with the Oscars looming on the horizon, the focus has swung to the local round of truck dealer awards by all of the major manufacturers.

The latest to announce its top dealers is Daimler  with its awards being held  this week.

And the winner is!

Daimler Trucks Albury taking out the prestigious Daimler Truck Dealer of the Year Award for 2022.

Daimler Truck president and CEO, Daniel Whitehead, presented the award to Daimler Truck Albury dealer principal, David Warren, at a glittering ceremony in Melbourne last night.

“Daimler Trucks Albury represents a remarkable success story, having thrived since David Warren and the team took hold of the reigns in early 2020,” Whitehead said.

“A highly respected local, David leads a highly motivated team that has reinvigorated the Mercedes-Benz Trucks, Freightliner and Fuso brands in the region and raised customer support to remarkable levels. Daimler Trucks Albury is clearly a deserving winner of the Daimler Truck Dealer of the Year award,” he added.

The company pointed out in its announcement statement that the Daimler Trucks Albury team is the sister store to another successful dealership in a key freight corridor: Daimler Trucks Wagga with both Daimler Trucks Albury and Daimler Trucks Wagga recently achieving Daimler’s Elite Support certification, which Daimler says is a dealership initiative that delivers the highest levels of customer experience.

“We know our Daimler Truck customers really appreciate the outstanding support delivered by these two dealership teams,” Daniel Whitehead concluded.

Not satisfied with the Dealer of the Year Award,n Daimler Trucks Albury also took out the Mercedes-Benz Trucks Regional Dealer of the Year and Freightliner Regional Dealer of the Year awards.

The Fuso Regional Dealer of the Year Award went to Daimler Trucks Sunshine Coast, while the Fuso Metro Dealer of the year Award was awarded to Sydney’s STM Trucks and Machinery.

Daimler Trucks Gold Coast won the Mercedes-Benz Trucks Metro Dealer of the Year, while Daimler Trucks Perth was announced as the winner of the Freightliner Metro Dealer of the Year.
