Jost fifth wheels now standard at Freightliner 23 May 2014

US haulage giant Freightliner has standardised on Jost fifth wheel couplings for its artics. Daimler Trucks North America and Jost sealed the deal last week.

Freightliner thus joins Volvo and Mack Trucks in north America as exclusive Jost coupling users – selecting JSK 36 units as standard equipment.

Daimler Trucks North America says it will also introduce the lightweight JSK 36 fifth wheel to the Western Star models 4700 and 4900 as an option.

"I am delighted that we have been able to win over Daimler Trucks North America, the biggest American truck manufacturer, with our product and our brand," comments Jost CEO Lars Brorsen.
