FTR’s Starks answers freight questions for Big Truck TV

Jason Cannon March 6, 2013

During a February Big Truck TV interview FTR President Eric Starks answered questions about the current state of the equipment market. 

Starks addressed the following issues:

  • What is the current state of the nation’s fleet?
  • Are the right economic ingredients in place for truck purchasing, so fleets can meet the market demand?
  • Commercial vehicles with less than 600K miles are in short supply, so what does this mean for demand as manufacturers announce potential cuts?

The six minute interview can be seen here, or by going to bigtrucktv.com and accessing the Equipment Market in the Current Economy video.

Starks is a regular contributor to Big Truck TV providing analysis about current conditions affecting shippers, carriers, as well as vehicle and component manufacturers, FTR says. His insight has proven valuable to all participants and those with interest in the transportation industry.
