The FUSO success story began in Japan in 1932 with a small bus called the B46. Thirty-one years later in 1963, the first Canter rolled off the production line, ushering in the start of a unique vehicle history. That vehicle has to date been followed by well over four million vehicles with just one goal: to make transport on the continents of this world more efficient and more economical for the customer.
