The parent company to both the Freightliner and Western Star truck brands, Daimler Trucks, has made a bold prediction for the year based on only the first months of 2015. This year, they believe, will be the year of “significant profits,” not to mention substantial increases in heavy-duty and medium-duty truck sales in North America. Read on to learn more about what exactly Daimler expects to do as we head into the second half of the decade!
The odds certainly seem to be in Daimler Trucks’ favor as the entire industry has seen steady and impressive growth over the last few years. The company has set some specific goals for sales figures in 2015 that it not only hopes, but fully expects to reach: a 10 percent increase in heavy-duty and medium-duty truck sales. This number wasn’t pulled out of thin air, either; because Daimler came within a few thousand trucks of its 2015 sales goal in 2014, a 10 percent increase seems to be completely attainable.
Daimler is looking forward to even higher sales through the end of the decade. By the year 2020, Daimler has set a goal of selling 700,000 units. Its projections for worldwide sales have taken into account the difficulties different foreign markets are facing, but as far as the numbers for North America go, the future is looking bright.
To hit their lofty goals, Daimler Trucks’ plan is to continue creating innovative and consumer-conscious trucks that incorporate all of the latest must-have technology. With a strong plan like that on their side, we are bound to see great things from Daimler in the weeks and months to come.
