Isuzu Breaks Sales Records Yet Again

Sales of Isuzu Trucks and Isuzu Parts Reach All-Time High in 2017
ANAHEIM, Calif.—Isuzu Commercial Truck of America, Inc, distributor of America’s bestselling low cab forward trucks, announced today that it shattered two sales records in 2017, making last year its new benchmark for retail sales of Isuzu-brand trucks and sales of Isuzu parts. This marks the third year in a row that Isuzu has established records in these key metrics.

Isuzu dealers retailed 22,633 Isuzu trucks to customers in 2017—a record for Isuzu-brand trucks in the United States.

In addition, Isuzu dealers purchased more parts with a sales increase of 3.9% versus 2016, setting another record.

“These records carry more meaning when you consider that we faced an increasing level of competition throughout 2017,” said Shaun C. Skinner, president, Isuzu Commercial Truck of America. “Our 2017 results are a testament to the hard work of our dealer body and our field force—and, of course, the loyalty of our customers.”

Skinner expressed confidence that the company’s momentum will continue into 2018: “The forecasts for our economy continue to be positive. Medium-duty trucks are in demand, and as the retail environment changes to rely less on bricks and mortar, that demand is expected to grow even more. And we have the strongest product lineup we have ever offered, with the addition of the all-new Class 6 FTR.

“Combine all these factors and 2018 looks to be another great year for Isuzu,” Skinner said.

FMCSA Publishes 90-day ELD Waiver for Short-Term Rental Trucks

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) published in the Federal Register the waiver the Truck Renting and Leasing Association requested for short-term rental trucks. This 90-day waiver from the electronic logging device mandate runs from Jan. 19, 2018, until April 19, 2018.
While TRALA was told by the agency Dec. 12 that this waiver was coming, TRALA had been waiting for the FMCSA to formally post it in the Federal Register. This way any driver of a short-term rental truck can simply print out a copy of the notice and carry it in their cab during this time frame, according to TRALA.

With the ELD mandate going in to effect on Dec. 18, 2017, TRALA says many enforcement officers have been unaware of the waiver being granted for rental trucks, which had created confusion for several TRALA members. With the waiver posted in the Federal Register, TRALA expects the inspection process to be much simpler for users of rental trucks.
The 90-day waiver will allow trucks rented for 30 days or less to use paper logs to record their hours of service and allow those providing the rental or lease trucks more time to equip trucks with ELDs. This 90-day waiver can only be issued once. After it expires, TRALA notes, rental customers will still be able to rely on the eight-day exemption from the ELD mandate for rental trucks that TRALA received late last year, which runs for five years.
There are several requirements within the 90-day waiver that must be followed in order to benefit from this exemption.  They include:
1. The waiver will expire on April 19, 2018.
2. The exemption covers rental of any property-carrying vehicle for a period of 30 days or less. Evidence that a carrier […]
