About Volvo and MTD

Established in 1968, Motor Truck Distributors (NZ) Ltd is a leading supplier of heavy trucks to the New Zealand market. Through determination, innovation and a keen sense of ensuring we exceed our customers expectations we remain today one of the most respected brands in New Zealand’s transport scene.

 With more than 40 years experience we know trucks and we know the industry. Our people are our biggest asset. They go the extra mile to ensure our ongoing success and that of our customers and business partners. From administration, accounts and IT to a dedicated in-house customer engineering team as well as a local technical support team, we boast some of the most experienced people available.

MTD specialises in the supply of leading truck products which meet the unique requirements of the New Zealand market. Located in Palmerston North, we are close to heartland New Zealand and with easy reach of key transport operators. Our Nationwide sales team are strategically located throughout both islands to provide prompt and efficient service.

Volvo Trucks supplied by us, are custom build for us, by the Volvo Trucks factory in Wacol, Queensland, Australia; meaning a level of specification ex factory which is hard to match. Years of fine tuning allow us to build exactly what we know works for you and your transport requirements.

Once we have delivered your truck we back it by providing one of the largest, most well equipped service networks in the country. Ensuring your asset remains in top shape is key to your financial success and our 18 branch network provides full parts and service capability as well as a 24 hour assistance service.
