The article assesses the market for U.S. truck equipment amidst the 2009 global recession. As observed, the industry is facing problems like lack of business deals and the uncertainty of chassis supply. The focus of the trucking business and geographical location also affect the state of the business, with truck dealers involved in alternative energy technologies construction doing better than those in construction and excavation. The industry is said to be optimistic that more work in the form of equipment repair will be coming in the near future.
