Global Truck Markets

DAF achieved a market share of 15.8 percent in the above 16-tonne segment in Europe this year, and is the market share leader in the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, Belgium and Central Europe. Motor Transport magazine in the United Kingdom recently honored the DAF XF105 with the “2013 Fleet Truck of the Year” award. “Customers recognize DAF’s product quality leadership, low operating costs and excellent resale value,” said Harrie Schippers, DAF president. “DAF’s range of industry-leading vehicles has been enhanced by the launch of the new DAF XF, CF and LF Euro 6 vehicles. It is estimated that industry sales in the above 16-tonne truck market in Europe this year will be in the range of 210,000-230,000 units."

“Class 8 industry retail sales for the U.S. and Canada in 2013 are expected to be in the range of 210,000-230,000 vehicles,” said Dan Sobic, PACCAR executive vice president. “Our customers are benefiting from record levels of freight tonnage and good freight rates. Truck demand is being driven primarily by the ongoing replacement of the aging truck population and an improving housing sector. The truck market should benefit from projected economic expansion in the remainder of the year, particularly growth in auto production and construction activity.”
