Freightliner LLC has created a used-truck retail sales group dedicated to serving fleets. The group will work with SelecTrucks Centers as well as Freightliner Trucks, Sterling and Western Star dealers to develop new fleet customers for late model Class 6-8 used vehicles.

"In establishing a dedicated used-truck retail fleet sales group, we are allocating significant new management resources to our used-truck sales effort," said Bill Gordon, president of Freightliner's business unit responsible for used-truck operations. "This move is further evidence of out focus on the used-truck business and our commitment to used-truck customers."

According to Gordon, the fleet group will serve fleets that do not have an existing used-truck relationship with a SelecTrucks Center or a dealer.

Customers to be served by the 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, according to Freightliner.
