Mercedes-Benz's MasterSolutions upfitter program has launched for Metris and Sprinter vans to provide common equipment packages for fleets through a Mercedes-Benz or Freightliner dealer.

Mercedes-Benz first announced the MasterSolutions program in July, when it unveiled plans to expand its South Carolina van plant to meet increasing demand.

With the program, fleets can order full-size Sprinter or mid-size Metris cargo and passenger vans with equipment from Auto Truck Group, Knapheide, or Smartliner. The upfitters can install shelves, racks, cab chassis bodies or refrigeration units. Auto Truck Group has invested in a new ship-through facility near the Daimler Vans Assembly Plant in Ladson, S.C. 

Mercedes-Benz is also expanding its more affordable Worker models of the Sprinter and Metris models. The company has also expanded its MasterUpfitter program, which grants highly qualified upfitters access to 3D engineering data, technical updates and detailed technical seminars.
