While the economic recession did affect many industries, some are coming out of it newly strengthened and ready to keep progressing further. The trucking industry is certainly among those; Daimler Trucks North America, the parent of Freightliner and Western Star trucks, has seen immense improvement in vocational truck sales over the course of the last year, and there’s no sign of stopping.
According to a recent article from Transport Topics, DTNA has noticed a distinct pattern of rapid growth in sales for Freightliner SD and M2 vocational trucks over the last five years. What exactly qualifies as a vocational truck? DTNA general manager David Hames says that there are essentially six types of vocational trucks: trucks for specialized hauling purposes, for government usage, for construction, for refuse, for utility company usage, and for food and beverage usage. The sales of these kinds of trucks indicate an overall improvement in the market; if these kinds of companies require and can afford to expand their truck fleets, then this shows economic development.
Freightliner vocational truck sales are a strong indicator of a healthier economy and their sales to truck equipment manufacturers give more and more companies access to necessary truck parts to maintain their fleets. If you are involved in a business that is seeking a way to expand, start with Baltimore Freightliner-Western Star and see why these high quality vocational trucks are in such high demand.
