July 3, 2012 - A new process at Isuzu Commercial Truck of America, a distributor of low-cab-forward trucks, hopes to allow Isuzu dealers to more quickly convert or modify gasoline-powered NPR-HD (14,500-lb. GVWR) trucks for their customers. When placing orders for new trucks, Isuzu dealers can select a ship-thru option to indicate that they have arranged to have the trucks modified at one of two independent modification centres near the trucks’ Charlotte, Mich., assembly plant. Following the modification, the centre will return the trucks to ICTA, which will then transport them to the appropriate dealer. The new process aims to eliminate unnecessary dealer-incurred transportation expenses and shorten the time to obtain alternative fuel conversions and certain other types of other modifications.
