Fleet Sentiment


"If you are interested in the commercial vehicle industry, you should be interested in what trucking fleets are thinking and doing. Fleet Sentiment research provides that insight"
- Chris Kemmer, CK Commercial Vehicle Research



We work with a panel of more than 50 men and women working at fleets that represent the core (an estimated 40%) of the trucking universe. The majority operate between 25 and 500 Class 8 trucks and a few have more than 5000 heavy-duty trucks in service. They regularly buy new trucks and trailers, adopt new technologies, buy parts and services, and DRIVE CHANGE in the commercial vehicle industry. Through this relationship we can report Fleet Sentiment on topics of interest to those either participating in or following this industry.
