Freightliner trucks have become the vehicle of choice for long-haul trucking. One doesn’t have to look very far to see that FREIGHTLINER is the truck of choice when it comes to dealing with African road conditions.
The history of Freightliner began as Leland James, Managing Director of Consolidated Freightways, decided to manufacture his own trucks for his freight forwarder. In 1939 "Freightways Manufacturing Corp." was founded as a subsidiary company in Salt Lake City (Utah). One year later, the first CF-100 front-mounted truck with diesel engine was completed. Freightliner was registered as a trademark in 1942.
The company was taken over by Daimler-Benz in 1981 and has since been part of the Daimler Group. The company's headquarters are located in Portland, Oregon.
