Freightliner’s Century Class CST112 has been built to excel in demanding and ultra-competitive environments – from single trailer distribution, intrastate and short haul work to tipper applications.
To prosper, you have to make a profit, and that is what the CST112 is all about. Its advanced DD13 engine is incredibly fuel efficient, its class-leading aerodynamics cut wind resistance to improve economy and its extremely low tare allows for larger payloads. If it costs less to run - there will be more money left for you.
