Freightliner LLC has created a used truck retail sales group dedicated to serving fleets. The group will work with SelecTrucks Centers, Freightliner Trucks, Sterling, and Western Star dealers to develop new fleet customers for late model, Class 6-8 used vehicles.
Customers to be served by the newly-formed used truck retail sales group include medium and large fleets that traditionally buy used trucks or those that currently purchase new, competitively-branded trucks but may be better served by high quality, late model used vehicles. The group will be headed by Bob McTernan, a 26-year veteran of the trucking industry and formerly Western Region General Sales Manager (new trucks) for Freightliner Trucks.
McTernan's team will consist of industry-experienced sales managers located in various geographic regions of North America.
The establishment of a used truck retail sales group is the latest in a series of used truck-related initiatives by Freightliner LLC. Among other measures, the company recently announced new financing options for used truck customers and innovative used truck purchase programs including Power to Succeed and SelectOne. The company also is opening a group of used truck retail remarketing centers, increasing its used truck reconfiguration operations and expanding its network of SelecTrucks Centers. First opened in 1997, SelecTrucks is Freightliner LLC's network of used truck outlets offering a wide selection of used trucks, convenient locations, comprehensive warranty packages, flexible financing terms and business support.
