Panel: How regulations, costs and reliability are changing the equipment life/trade cycle

During the last rounds of emissions standards, many fleets took a “wait-and-see” approach, extending their trade cycles to avoid the higher purchase price and reliability concerns of the new technologies for as long as possible. At the same time, many embraced fuel saving technologies for trucks and trailers to help offset higher operating costs. With new greenhouse gas and fuel efficiency standards on the horizon, how will fleets respond? Will continued economic uncertainty affect when they trade their trucks and trailers?

Speakers:

John Diez, Senior Vice President, Ryder

Bruce Ewald, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Wabash National Trailer Center

David Hames, General Manager of Marketing and Strategy, Daimler Trucks North America

Moderator and Q&A: Jack Roberts, Executive Editor, Commercial Carrier Journal
