MAN Latin America receives two major orders for a total of 814 trucks
MAN leads the Brazilian market for the eleventh year running
AMBEV, South America's largest beer brewery, will receive 314 new Worker 23.230 vehicles just in time for the football World Cup in Brazil in a design that was specially developed for the transportation of beverages. This enables MAN Latin America to defend its Brazilian market leadership for drinks transportation in the truck market too. 2013 saw MAN Latin America lead the commercial vehicle market in Brazil overall for the eleventh year running.
Roberto Cortes, President of MAN Latin America, sees the two orders as an excellent start to 2014 and revealed his recipe for success: "It is all about offering customers vehicles that meet their wishes and requirements exactly. And that is just what we do: our product range includes commercial vehicles ranging from 5.5 through 74 tons that can be relied on to serve even when the conditions are tough."

It also has a network of 343 authorized dealers and garages in strategically key regions of the continent. MAN has more than 50 different truck and bus models to offer overall in Latin America.
