LONGVIEW, Texas — Shunt truck manufacturer Capacity of Texas says it has strengthened its global dealer network and recently landed orders for more than 500 terminal trucks.
The recent orders were placed by “two of the largest transportation and package-shipping companies in North America,” as well as international customers, the company says.
Capacity also announced it has added 13 new dealers in the US this year.
“At the beginning of the year, Capacity embarked upon an aggressive effort to expand its distribution and servicing network to bring even more continuity and high-quality service to our customers,” said Jerry Looney, vice-president of sales and marketing for Capacity. “We are proud to partner with the most reliable dealers in the industry and will continue to strengthen all aspects of our dealer and service network.”
Canadian dealer International Rive Nord in Montreal, says it has had success with the brand thanks to its custom Canadian spec’s.
“We requested a solution for cold weather applications and Capacity developed a stainless steel skin that greatly enhanced the durability of the truck in cold weather,” said International Rive Nord’s Sylvain Lepine. “Because of Capacity’s flexibility to facilitate an on-site demonstration to an important customer, we were able to sell that customer 35 trucks in the last year. Our customers recognize that Capacity designs some of the most stable and comfortable terminal trucks in the business.”
The company also says it continues to offer a 90-120 day turnaround time on build-to-order terminal tractors and is the only manufacturer to offer both Cummins and Navistar power.
