Western Star more than doubles locations

Western Star Trucks more than doubled its dealer and service locations in the United States and Canada over the past five years, including a 22 % increase in 2003.

“We know that time equals money to our owner-operator customers, and by adding coverage in 14 major markets since 1999, Western Star helps them keep their businesses running smoothly,” said John Merrifield, senior vice-president of sales and marketing for Western Star.

For example, a trucker traveling from Los Angeles CA on Interstate 10 will pass 12 locations before reaching Jacksonville FL. In 1999, the same trucker would only have passed two.
