In a survey of 31 for-hire and private fleets conducted by CK Commercial Vehicle Research at the end of April, 32% said they plan to place orders for power units in the next three months. This is nearly identical to the 34% who planned purchases during the first quarter of 2007.
Complete survey results will be reported in the May-June issue of The Fleet Sentiment Report.
CK Commercial Vehicle Research distributes a questionnaire quarterly to fleet managers responsible for the purchase, spec'ing, and maintenance of commercial vehicles. Regular contributors answer questions regarding their purchase plans for tractors and trailers. Best practice and opinions on industry issues are covered as well.
