According to an article in the most recent addition of Transport Topics, there has been a huge leap in Class 8 vehicle sales this summer. This marked increase includes a total of 19,373 units sold in June, one of the highest monthly totals since the last big surge in truck sales, almost eight years ago. This first half of the year has seen a 16.3% increase compared to the same time frame last year as well. And while the success of the trucking industry in general is widely acknowledged, two of Daimler Trucks North America’s brands are doing particularly well: Freightliner and Western Star.
As a dealer of both top-selling brands, Baltimore Freightliner-Western Star is thrilled to see the impressive sales figures appearing this year and proud to be a part of them. Freightliner, always in the top spot of trucking brands, rose in sales by 19.2%. Western Star was second place in the market share, and increased its individual sales by a whopping 48.2%.
So what exactly is the driving force behind this sales surge? Transport Topics cites improving technology and related innovations as a big part of the appeal. Those in the trucking industry who have been relying on older models and fleets for years are seeing the value of improved fuel economy and efficiency of new truck models, and are looking to stay on the cutting edge in their field. Baltimore Freightliner-Western Star knows that as a go-to vendor of both these successful brands, they are representing quality products that have clearly been impressing people nationwide.
