Unimog GenuineParts impress Schweinfurt's Waterways and Shipping Authority.
You can feel the enthusiasm when Norbert Eusemann talks about his Unimog. The U 400 is the 57 year-old's fourth model since he began his duties at the Volkach site of Schweinfurt's Waterways and Shipping Authority (WSA) in 1981. His interest in the Unimog began when he was eight years old and later his passion became his profession.
„The Mercedes-Benz Service has definitely earned its star.“

So it's not surprising that the man from Germany's Franconia region enjoys his work. He explains that the Waterways and Shipping Authority is very much like the motorway works yard but for waterways. His area of operation is a 50 km stretch of the Main river between Schweinfurt and Kitzingen with its five barrages. This branch of Schweinfurt's WSA is also responsible for the 11 km oxbow and the Main canal.
Norbert Eusemann's most important work equipment is his Unimog U 400 which, in eight years of service, has not yet required any big repairs or spare parts. Even the brake components on the Unimog U 400, which are known to be subject to a great deal of wear and tear, are still the original parts – proof of the especially long service life of Mercedes Benz GenuineParts.
