Steve Tam gave an update on the medium duty truck market in a presentation at Seminar 61 on August 13th, 2019. While on stage, Steve took time to identify what a medium duty (Classes 5–7) commercial truck is, as well as the outlook of the medium duty markets. The medium duty markets are included in ACT’s State of the Industry: Classes 5–8 report, a monthly look at the current production, sales, and general state of the market.
