February 3, 2010

Trucks are being sent to the poverty-stricken island of Haiti in an effort to help it recover from the recent devastating earthquake.

Daimler Trucks is sending 20 of its Fuso Canter trucks to help deliver vital aid materials to Haitians in need of medical help and food supplies.

The company says the Fuso’s high payload capacity is ideal for distributing blankets, medicines, food, and water in the refugee camps.

"Everyone who looks at the images coming out of Haiti is asking himself, ‘What can I do?’ And trucks are what we do best," Daimler’s Andreas Renschler

Haiti’s capital Port-au-Prince was struck by a 7.0 magnitude earthquake on January 12 and it is estimated 200,000 people have died.
