COLUMBUS, Ohio — An annual fleet study conducted by CK Commercial Vehicle Research in the US indicates there will be strong demand for Class 8 trucks in 2011.
The fleet survey shows a 47% increase in the number of fleets who plan new Class 8 and medium-duty power unit purchases in 2011 compared to those who planned to buy in 2010.
“The strongest demand comes for Class 8 units,” said Chris Kemmer of CKCVR. “Eighty-eight per cent of the power units planned by this group for 2011 are for Class 8 vehicles.”
The survey included 68 representatives from US fleets operating a total of 45,000 Class 8 and 12,000 medium-duty trucks. To order the complete survey, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
