Throughout the pandemic, ATD’s advocacy work has continued uninterrupted in the nation’s capital, and many other issues are being tackled at the local and state levels.
Commercial truck sales started the year off well, with total sales of 98,404—an increase of 15.8% from first quarter 2020.
While initiatives may change with time, ATD’s core mission stays the same: to serve and represent the needs of truck dealer members through advocacy, industry relations, education and premier member services.
While politics in the nation’s capital may be partisan, truck dealers are more united than ever advocating for their customers, employees, and dealerships. I urge our members to get involved and stay engaged.
We have pulled through one of the most challenging times of our lives, and I’m confident that we’re well-positioned to take advantage of the new year’s opportunities.
Commercial truck sales closed out 2020 with total sales just shy of 410,000 units, a decline of 22.3% from the 2019 total.
In addition to workshops for each dealership department, truck dealers will find the ATD-focused sessions especially timely.
December 2020 marks a time that most truck dealers didn’t expect to see in the earlier part of the year: strong growth.
Despite everything that’s taken us to our breaking point, we’ve survived. And I know we’ll come out of 2020 as resilient as ever!
Despite the challenges of this year, truck dealers continued to work hard to keep the ground fertile so that our markets could grow through even the toughest conditions.
