Foton Motor Philippines, Inc. (FMPI) has turned over 300 Foton trucks to YTO Express Philippines, one of the leading logistics companies in the country. The acquisition of 300 trucks is part of efforts from YTO Express to realize a sizable boost in mobility and logistics for the benefit of both the consumer and the national economy. The strengthened fleet is expected to enable substantially faster and more efficient delivery of goods and services to Filipino consumers.
The official turnover was held last April 18, 2022, at the Foton Assembly Plant in Clark, Pampanga. Gracing the official turnover event were executives from both Foton Motor Philippines Inc. and YTO Express Philippines.

YTO Express Philippines has developed its trust in Foton, leading to closer collaboration and solidification of the partnership. YTO Express Philippines is acquiring a fleet composed of 300 units of the Tornado M4.2C and M2.6C F-van. Powered by an internationally recognized 3.8-liter ISF Cummins engine, the trucks produce a maximum power output of 154 PS at 2600 rpm and 500 Nm of torque from 1200 to 1900 rpm - offering solid strength for delivering products across cities.
