Hino and Morgan Corp. Partner for Faster Turnarounds
Hino Trucks has partnered with Morgan Corp. on a quick delivery, dry freight van body program for its conventional trucks. This partnership will give Hino dealers across the country access to faster turnaround times on 24- to 26-ft. dry freight van bodies and provide customers shorter lead times, according to the companies.
Morgan Corp. manufactures Class 3-7 dry freight van bodies and refrigerated truck bodies. Morgan also custom builds curtainsiders, furniture and moving van bodies, portable storage units, parcel van bodies and stake/platform truck bodies.
The "Quick Turn" stock program will serve 46 states (excluding, Hawaii, Alaska, California and Nevada) and trucks will be stocked through Morgan’s regional manufacturing operations in Morgantown, Pa.; Rydal, Ga.; Corsicana, Texas; and Lakeland, Fla. Despite regional stocking, customers will receive the benefit of consistent, national pricing across the country that maintains the same price on the program bodies through all Hino dealers.
“Morgan’s nationwide presence offers our customers unmatched service and support," said Glenn Ellis, VP of marketing for Hino Trucks. "Morgan has been a first-rate supplier to Hino Trucks over the last number of years, and prides itself on industry-leading innovation, quality and delivery. We look forward to expanding our body program offerings with Morgan while maintaining the high level of quality and satisfaction that Hino customers have come to expect."
“This new program is designed to have a 21-day turnaround from chassis or order receipt on stocked trucks,” said Chris Johnson, national account manager for Morgan Corporation. “In today’s increasing economic climate, Morgan is committed to helping Hino customers cut their wait time, provide competitive pricing, and ensure the best product on the road.”
