Welcome to the Daimler Trucks and Buses Southern Africa - Body Building Portal

Daimler Trucks and Buses Southern Africa (DT&BSA) is the leader in the commercial vehicle market in South Africa. We recognise the vital role played by body builders and equipment suppliers in serving our customers. We aim to build and strengthen our relationships with these valuable business partners. This portal is designed to facilitate the cooperation between us and our partners in addressing the needs of our mutual customers.

In keeping with this philosophy, the portal aims to give DT&BSA sales teams and key account customers the ability to identify body-builders and equipment suppliers for specific conversions at any time. In this way, the portal is available to body-builders and equipment suppliers as a marketing instrument.

In order to assist you with your day-to-day body building activities, the Body Building Portal provides relevant information for mounting bodies and equipment on Mercedes-Benz, Freightliner, FUSO and Western Star commercial vehicles. In addition to our Body and Equipment Mounting Directives, we also provide vehicle drawings in pdf and .dxf formats and information circulars to keep you abreast with product developments.

This information will enable you to design the body so that it is a perfect fit for our chassis and assist you to efficiently integrate the body and equipment to achieve optimal results.

For any body building related queries, please feel free to contact the relevant Body Building Liaison Specialist indicated on the Body Building Portal.

We look forward to a successful, mutually beneficial and long lasting relationship!
