Truck and Bus Manufacturers
OEMs Hitch Supply Chain Needs to Comprehensive Logistics
Producing from roughly $16 billion of revenue in 2009 to $21 billion in 2014, truck and bus OEMs have reason to be bullish, given the growth in the various manufacturing, construction, and retail sectors as well as investments in public school transportation systems.
In the trucking industry alone, a sharp increase in freight activity and lower fuel prices have paved the way for motor carriers to invest in new truck purchases.
