Mack deliveries still down, but orders up

LEHIGH VALLEY, Pa. – Global deliveries from Mack Trucks, Inc. through May were down 17 per cent compared with the same period last year.

Order intake continued to be strong through most of May, but commercial activity slowed late in the month as truck manufacturers (including Mack) began to confirm that production slots for trucks with pre-EPA ’02 engines were no longer available.

The North American numbers, which account for the bulk of Mack’s global results, saw the company deliver 8,750 between January and May 2002. That’s down from the same period last year when the total was 10,561.
