“Class 8 industry retail sales in the U.S. and Canada improved to 225,000 units in 2012 compared to 197,000 in 2011,” said Dan Sobic, PACCAR executive vice president. “Our customers are benefiting from good freight tonnage and freight rates. In 2012, PACCAR achieved a record Class 8 retail market share in the U.S. and Canada of 28.9 percent as customers benefited from Kenworth and Peterbilt vehicles’ low operating cost. Estimates for U.S. and Canada truck industry Class 8 retail sales in 2013 are in the range of 210,000-240,000 units, driven by ongoing replacement of the aging fleet and the overall growth in the economy,” added Sobic.South American Expansion
