"For Mercedes-Benz buses, safety is not measured in units, but is the result of an overall integral safety concept. All our buses are built with development across all areas aimed at meeting the highest safety expectations, "Villinger said.

In the event of GIICOMVEC, Mercedes-Benz also displays the Actros 2640 LS truck with an anti-fire ADR chassis, the preferred transport for petroleum companies. Continuing the long tradition of Actros, DCVI will soon introduce New Actros this year. The robust and reliable Line Actros have some key safety features like Electronic Stability Program, Lane Keeping Assist, Attention Assist, Proximity Control Assist, and Active Brake Assist 4 as an option. These features include the state of the art technology for the Indonesian truck market.
