Who is South Bay Truck Center?
We are a commercial truck dealership specializing in light, medium
South Bay Truck Center was formed in 2006, after Velocity Vehicle Group aquired the
heavy duty truck sales, truck service, truck parts & truck emissions.
Don Kott Truck franchise in Carson. During the transition of ownership, VVG immediately expanded operations to include the Freightliner brand to accompany the existing Hino Trucks & Isuzu Trucks brands. With the creation of South Bay Truck Center, the facility was further able to help existing customers and the truck market by providing a much more extensive range of parts & service, for all makes and models of trucks, buses, RVs and commercial chassis. During this stage, VVG relocated the BusWest division to this facility, to make South Bay Truck Center one of the larger complete vehicle service facilities in California. No matter how mixed your fleet is, the departments at South Bay could help you.
2008 was a big year for South Bay Truck Center. In partnership with their sister division, LA Freightliner, the teams worked to secure one of the largest deals to provide alternative fuel trucks to the Ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach, to help reduce emissions and allow truck drivers to purchase discounted vehicles as part of Californias Clean Trucks Program. Offering the first complete LNG truck in California, the Sterling LNG, and later along with the Freightliner M2 LNG truck, South Bay Truck Center was a forerunner in bringing a complete alt fuel solution into California. Along with the actual truck sales, South Bay Truck Center is also the closest port of call for all truck service and truck parts in the South Bay / L.A. Basin.
In 2009/2010, VVG decided to move its Long Beach Freightliner division (which was 4 miles down the road) into the South Bay Truck Center. With this move, the carson facility became one of the most comprehensive truck dealerships in California. Bringing 25 years of industry experts, including the Used Truck specialists, service mechanics with decades of experience across a variety of platforms, and parts experts, South Bay Truck Center further cemented itself as the solution for all things truck related. With the addition of a dedicated used truck
sales department, now named Freightliner Used Trucks Center, this facility is able to offer the complete truck package to suit the customer.
Along with the addition of Long Beach Freightliner, another VVG division setup offices at the South Bay Truck Center, Fleet now uses this facility as their main headquarters. Offering mobile and service maintenance packages for fleets large and small, this service is the perfect partner for any trucking company. Outsource your service needs to Fleet and get peace of mind that your truck repairs and maintenance are covered for one low monthly price.
