Daimler Trucks and Buses Southern Africa recently handed over an impressive fleet of 90 Mercedes-Benz Actros 2645LS trucks to Bakers SA Limited in South Africa. This sizeable purchase adds to Bakers’ current mega fleet of nearly 650 vehicles, which remarkably comprises 100% Mercedes-Benz Truck products.
For four decades, Mercedes-Benz Trucks and Bakers SA Limited have enjoyed a long-standing partnership, which began when Bakers SA Limited, a privately owned family business bought their first Mercedes-Benz Truck in the early seventies. Since then, the company has become one of the country’s leading independent logistics companies - with Mercedes-Benz Trucks at its core. Bakers are specialists in warehousing, Primary-Secondary, and final mile distribution for dedicated contracts of packaging, fast-moving consumer goods, and WBG (household appliances) across South Africa and into neighboring countries.
