Jost Forchner, the leader of the technical team from Germany, commented:

“Our linking with Mercedes Benz truck dealers around the world to run service camps is part of our company’s strategy of back up for our customers.

"As the inspections which we carry out can be extremely detailed, we like to call ourselves “The Flying Doctors” because we travel around the world assisting customers.”

Steve Farrell, the Director for Aftersales at DT Dobie, explained:

“D T Dobie are very proud to hold the first dedicated service camps in Africa along with Daimler.

"We appreciate that time is a premium for truck owners and the service camps are aimed at minimizing interruptions to the busy work schedules for their vehicles.

"The programme demonstrates our support for our customers by bringing a team of top technicians to assess the condition of their vehicles at a location near their bases.”

“We are convinced that workshop, parts and procurement managers of companies running fleets of Mercedes trucks will enhance their knowledge on achieving the best results from their investments.

"Subjects covered include service maintenance contracts, service packages and special parts offers.

"In addition, technicians working for fleet owners will be given on site tips and best practice by our team.”

“The advantage of using genuine Mercedes Benz spares which carry a warranty unlike second tier parts, it is crucial to emphasize this for long term economy and safety."
