New initiative touts 10-day mounting of stock bodies upon arrival of chassis, but available options deliver a solution that 'feels far from standard,' company says

Marion Body Works has launched the Marion Express Body Program, touted as a solution for customers seeking a stock body with the fastest turn-around time in the industry.

The Express Body Program offers one commercial truck body option that’s available for same-day purchase and could be truck mounted within 10 days of chassis arrival. Normal lead time for a commercial truck body outside of the Express Body Program is six to eight weeks, according to Marion.

“The Express Body Program is another example of how Marion strives for continuous improvement in how we serve our customers,” said Kevin Ignacio, director of business development. “With the ability to choose the features and liftgate that best suit their needs, customers will receive a fast, quality solution that feels far from standard.”

Stock bodies in the Express Body Program feature high-demand specs and top-quality materials, Marion notes. They are 26 feet long, 103 inches tall, and 102 inches wide. The stock bodies feature smooth side construction and are forklift ready, with scuff, threshold plate, four extra crossmembers at the rear, and a 1 3/8-inch floor. A full stainless rear frame with post-mounted taillights, two rows of E-Track, and two LED motion sensor dome lights are also included.

Buyers can choose from a selection of stocked liftgates or walk ramps as well as custom features including dock extensions, rubber bumpers, underbody boxes, and more, Marion says.
