REDFORD, Mich. — A new online “Municipal HQ by Sterling Trucks” will serve as a how-to guide for government agencies. Sterling Truck Corporation has launched the Web site to assist municipalities in selecting truck specs for their specific applications.

Located at, the new “Municipal HQ by Sterling Trucks” gives city, county, and state agencies an online tool and how-to guide for developing specs.

“For many agencies that don’t purchase trucks on a regular basis, keeping up with the latest products and options on the market isn’t a priority,” said Ann Demitruk, director of marketing for Sterling Truck Corporation. “‘Municipal Headquarters by Sterling’ provides all the tools needed to write specs for municipal trucks based on both their equipment needs and the latest technology.”

Popular specs for medium- and heavy-duty dump, refuse, and snowplow trucks are featured on the site, as well as Sterling’s Bid Spec Builder, an interactive tool for building and spec’ing customized trucks for these applications.

By downloading the Bid Spec Builder for medium-, heavy-, or severe-duty trucks, fleet managers can easily use pull-down menus to choose their requirements for everything from engine equipment to fuel tanks, says the company.

Fleet managers can also save and update the bid specs they use every year by downloading the Spec Optimizer tool.

“The Spec Optimizer is ideal for those who want to update specs that may be several years old,” continued Demitruk. “Once an equipment manager has built their ideal spec package, they can easily print it out and bring it to their local dealer.”

Additional resources include an online dealer locator and information for body builders, such as links to the body builder reference guides on
