Greater safety

Arrive safely – with the support of innovative assistance systems.

Getting you there safely - with the support of innovative assistance systems which actively ease the burden on the driver, help protect the vehicle and its cargo, contributing to greater efficiency. On every trip.

Trucks that are very safe are not just an important development for all road users. They are also more efficient, because they are less often put out of action by accidents and they relieve the driver's workload. This is why we have been focusing for over 45 years now on developing innovative assistance systems.

General Safety Regulation.

From 2024, new requirements defined by the General Safety Regulation (GSR) will make legal standards for greater safety in road traffic binding throughout the EU. Our Mercedes-Benz trucks not only meet these requirements currently – they also ensure even greater safety thanks to additional technologies.
