"We always look forward to the NTEA Work Truck Show and the opportunity to celebrate our vocational trucks. Work trucks serve countless different industries, and this show is a great way for customers to stay abreast of the innovations Freightliner Trucks is bringing to the market." — Richard Saward, general manager - vocational sales at Daimler Trucks North America.
"I couldn't imagine a better profession. A lot of people aren't aware of the advantages that a career in truck driving offers and are a little intimidated by the unknown. All jobs don't require you to be gone multiple nights a week or require extreme physical ability. That's a large misconception about this industry. This career has allowed me to rise from financial debt and establish independence and I'm forever grateful." — Helen Hextrum, diesel truck driver at Pilot Logistics.
"Freightliner is impressed by the development taking place in many markets. Hardest Working Cities honors and celebrates the communities that are leading the economic recovery. The process of selecting these cities involved an extensive review and is a reminder that we are more than a truck manufacturer; we build the tools our customers count on to drive their success." — Diane Hames, general manager - marketing and strategy at Daimler Trucks North America.
"We also pride ourselves on industry-leading visibility from the cab. The M2 106, M2 112, 108SD and 114SD all offer the largest windshield in their categories, due to our bigger glass area and dash panels shaped to offer better fields of vision. This design provides crew members a better overall view of congested streets and work sites." — Mark Howerton, market segment manager for Freightliner Trucks
"The 122SD is a product that we've developed by listening to our customers and understanding their needs, and we've collectively crafted it to heavy haul perfection. This severe-duty truck is one of the most durable trucks on the market. The maneuverability, toughness and safety of this truck helps businesses enhance their bottom lines." — JP Davis, market segment manager for Freightliner Trucks.
