2021-2022 eXpertUpfitter Application Process
Thank you for your interest in becoming one of our Mercedes‐Benz / Freightliner Vans eXpertUpfitters!
eXpertUpfitter Program Invitations are granted to potential eXpertUpfitters based on a number of factors, focusing on program fit, company innovation, potential scale and overall upfit scope. In order to receive an invitation, both a Mercedes‐Benz Vans dealer and an associated Mercedes‐Benz Regional Sales Manager (RSM) and / or a Mercedes‐Benz van Key Account Manager (KAM) must be a reference for you. Please see your local dealer, RSM, or KAM for the applicable reference form.
The 2021-2022 eXpertUpfitter Program requires experienced applicants that are familiar and compliant with all applicable Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (FMVSS) and required testing pertaining to the upfit of our vans. Applicants are required to adhere to all applicable Mercedes‐Benz and Freightliner Body and Equipment Guidelines and related bulletins as well as match our transferable warranty of 3 years / 36,000 miles on upfit related parts and labor. For further requirements and details please see your local Mercedes‐Benz Vans dealership.
Please note: Mercedes‐Benz / Freightliner Vans does not make determinations regarding any and all safety aspects of eXpertUpfitter builds. It is the eXpertUpfitter who is solely responsible for all applicable required testing, certifications, and safety related performance of their products and upfitted vehicles. Any relevant information obtained by Mercedes‐Benz / Freightliner vans from you, the upfitter, is obtained only for the purpose of determining if the upfitter is willing and able to comply with the Mercedes‐Benz / Freightliner recommendations.
