Operators of Hino vehicles can now enjoy a four-percent reduction in the price of all replacement parts – an initiative the original equipment manufacturer sees as a contribution to assisting fleet owners to lower total cost of ownership (TCO).
The price reduction is coupled to a one-year, over-the-counter parts warranty and a two-year warranty on parts that are purchased and fitted at a Hino dealership.
“We realise that if we can lower the cost of parts, while maintaining our excellent supply rate, this will be a real win-win for our Hino customers. We are, therefore, implementing this price-cutting initiative, which is made possible by improved efficiencies in all aspects of our parts operation,” explains Sudesh Sanilall, senior manager: aftersales at Hino SA.
“We have an ongoing focus on improving operating costs and cost per kilometre, or life cycle cost. This drove our decision to lower the price of parts across the board this year.
“This move is also in line with Hino’s successful global Total Support strategy, where one of the pillars is decreasing downtime and reducing the cost of ownership for Hino customers,” added Sanilall.
“We believe that this price reduction will be well accepted by our customers and will re-affirm our business partnership with them,” he concludes.
