The author talks about the truck and trailer aftermarket in the U.S. He explains that during the global economic crisis when new equipment are not entering the market, sales for parts of older trucks and trailer go up. He examines the Truckable Economic Activity which are products or goods moved by trucks. He cautions that even though the economy is still not performing, the aftermarket for truck and trailers is still not expected to increase due to improvements in the durability and reliability of equipment components.
