As truck demand grows, so does the backlog. No one doubts that the economy is due for a pickup; one that in many areas is already underway. Freight volumes are consistently increasing. And truck manufacturers are working to keep up with orders, secure scarce supplies and expand manufacturing.
Below are a few ways fleets can ride it out and minimize the wait:

Try an MHC Rental Truck
While the backlog for new trucks remains steady, consider an MHC rental truck during the wait. MHC offers readily available sleepers, day cabs, dump trucks, transit vans and more. Most are equipped with the latest technologies. MHC rentals also come with 7-day, 24-hour customer and roadside assistance.
