Learn all about FUSO Canter’s range from the operators that run them
We spoke to four operators of light commercial vehicles across the FUSO Canter range to build a picture of what it’s like to use these trucks every day.
Wincanton has five 7.5-tonne eCanters on the road making home deliveries in London and the South-East. The operator, along with DPD and Hovis were among the first operators to run the all-electric Canters back in March 2018.
Econ Engineering, Yorkshire
Econ Engineering have been putting snow ploughs on some of their 11 4x4 grit spreading Canters and hiring them out all over the country.
City Access Scaffolding, Edinburgh
Up in Edinburgh City Access Scaffolding use their automatic Canter 3.5 tonne to transport poles just under 4m long, along with other fixtures and tools around congested streets.
Refrigerated 7.5 tonne Canters are used by Leicestershire-based Soyfoods to make regular, multi-drop deliveries to retailers, restaurants, caterers and other customers located along the M1 and A1 corridors.
Along with operators, we also spoke to the sellers and servicers of the Canter range to learn about the finance options available, and the national network that keeps these small trucks on the road.

Ford's F-Max will soon be available to buy in Western Europe
Ford Trucks has brought forward its plans to enter western Europe, following the success of its new F-Max range, the current International Truck of the Year.
Previously the Turkish truck builder had said expansion into western Europe was several years away, but last week Ford Trucks general manager Haydar Yenigun revealed it had pulled forward its plans, and was negotiating with new dealership candidates in Italy, Spain and Portugal.
Ford recently completed its network in central and eastern Europe, and already has a service network across western Europe.
