Antos Distribution

*

Perfectly tailored to the demands of the future.

Never before in the history of Mercedes-Benz has a truck been geared so closely to the demands of distribution work from 18t upwards:


A whole new Class. Making light work of heavy-duty distribution.

It doesn’t just define the new class by having a name of its own though. The Antos sends out a very clear message visually speaking too – with a design that clearly identifies it as a member of the Mercedes-Benz truck family at the same time as reflecting its tremendous functionality and efficiency in every last little detail.

The engineering aboard the new Antos makes equally impressive reading: from the front bumper to the end cross member, everything is designed for dealing with the rigours of the daily routine and getting the job well done. Solutions which help you to keep to deadlines and generate profits. And when it comes to collaborating together with your bodybuilder, the Antos again shows its true class by showing itself to be highly adaptable: it allows the vehicle configuration to be optimised for your operations whatever the sector and whatever your requirements.


The new Class of Handling. For safety and productivity.

The Antos was specifically developed for distribution applications, so that you can tackle the growing challenges of day-to-day operation faster, more easily and more comfortably than ever before. The cabs are systematically geared towards the specific application, allowing them to offer an excellent balance between body length, payload capacity and a comfortable, practical workstation. The standardised width of 2300 mm provides an optimum overall view for the driver, while the low, stair-like entrance takes the strain out of getting in and out the cab.

The highly responsive, dynamic drive in the new Antos also makes a winning impression from the word go. Working in unison with the standard Mercedes PowerShift 3 automated gearshift and the application matched rear-axle ratios, the high torque Euro VI engines fitted as standard are able to deliver a tangible sense of dynamism and economical driving pleasure in virtually any driving situation. Furthermore, there is an array of safety and assistance systems, such as Active Brake Assist 3 and Attention Assist, which can come to the driver’s aid in stressful situations.


For greater efficiency. Today and in the future.

The new Antos impresses with its innovative, fuel-saving technology, outstanding ease of body mounting, low overall costs and forward-looking concept. From the very first day... Besides the low fuel consumption and minimal CO2 emissions, compliance with the stringent Euro VI standard comes as standard – ideal for inner city operation. Efficiency also shines through with easy body mounting, for faster entry into service, and extended service intervals, keeping you on the road for longer, for less.


Product Portfolio. For perfectly matched solutions.

The Antos can be tailored to your specific needs in many ways, with a freely selectable modular design. For example, we can offer a range of six cabs, a wide range of axle and frame height configurations as both tractor units and rigid models and complete range of wheelbases, overhangs and crossmember positions.


The new dimension of Services.

We place our range of tailor-made services at your disposal to ensure hassle-free driving. Alongside the extensive Europe-wide workshop network and 24 hour support, these include FleetBoard® telematics, Service Contracts, Driver Training and Financial Services all customised to meet your needs. In addition, our comprehensive range of accessories ensures that your new Antos cuts a particularly individual figure as it goes about its work.

The operator, which is based in Consett, County Durham, knows from experience that it can depend on their long-term reliability – some of its first, 62-registered trucks from the latest Actros range have already covered well over a million kilometres.
