Cold chain carrier, Bidfood Australia, a leading supplier in the food service industry has marked the delivery of its 125,000th Hino commercial vehicle.
The handover ceremony took place at Bidfood’s new facility in Richlands, Brisbane where it operates 210 Hino trucks including the 500 Series Standard Cab FE1426.
Sci-Fleet Hino Dealer Principal Craig Andersson was on hand to deliver the truck.
“For Bidfood, the Hino 500 Series Standard Cabs are a logical choice as they boast class-leading safety, high levels of innovation and technology, while also meeting Euro 6 emission standards plus the feedback from our drivers has been overwhelmingly positive,” said Grant Fairlie Bidfood Australia General Manager of Procurement and Marketing.
For Hino Australia, the sale of the 125,000th vehicle has been another highlight in a year that featured the launch of its new 300 Series light-duty truck and a record sales month in June.
“55 years after we sold our first vehicle in Australia, this is a fantastic milestone for Hino Australia – with a complete rejuvenation of our light and medium-duty truck line-up over the last three years, the future is bright,” said Bill Gillespie, Hino Australia General Manager of Brand and Franchise Development.
Hino Australia Business Development Manager Jeff Nicotra was on hand to present Bidfood Richlands General Manager Duncan Alderson with a commemorative plaque to mark the occasion.
