Freightliner Custom Chassis Corp. (FCCC) recently hit a milestone as it delivered its 50,000th chassis to UPS.
Leaders from UPS, FCCC and FCCC parent company Daimler Trucks North America were on hand at FCCC headquarters in Gaffney, S.C., recently to mark the official delivery of the milestone chassis, which was specially branded and displayed for the event, along with local civic leaders from Gaffney.
“This is a momentous and special day for FCCC, one that is the culmination of an incredible amount of teamwork, dedication and effort on the part of a lot of people over the past 20-plus years,” said Jeff Sather, president of FCCC. “This is also a day that certainly wouldn’t be possible without UPS, a customer who views us as much more than just a vendor – but rather as a valued, strategic partner, as they have for more than two decades.”
FCCC began its partnership with UPS in 1996, delivering more than 600 units of its MT-45 chassis that first year. FCCC has delivered more than 1,000 chassis to UPS in 13 different years since 1996, with a peak of more than 6,000 in 2015.
