ABSTRACT
The article reports on the improvement in the Fleet Equipment Buying Index of CK Commercial Vehicle Research (CKCVR) in the U.S. from 75.8 in the first quarter to 93.3 in the second quarter of 2008. Planned buying behavior of for-hire, private and government fleets are measured in the index. Forty-eight percent of fleet operators intend to place orders for power units in the next three months, based on a poll conducted by CKCVR in April 2009. It points out that the orders are still weak despite a rise in the number of operators planning to order.
