Heavy vehicle’s sales fell 41.9% during March: ANPACT
MEXICO CITY — The National Association of Producers of Buses, Trucks and Tractor-trucks (ANPACT), reported that during the past month of March, the sale of heavy vehicles totaled 2,089 units, a figure that compared to the 3,928 registered in March 2019, represented a 46.8% drop.
Miguel Elizalde, executive president of ANPACT, stated that the fall in sales responds to a series of factors that have been occurring since July 19th, resulting in the steepest drop in sales during the first quarter of the last 10 years.
In the coming months, however, the impact will be even greater due to the exchange rate, and the caution that will be taken in the industry to renew the fleet in the face of the economic situation that is coming, “he added
“Therefore, in support of the health emergency, we have requested for the entire motor transport chain to be specified as an essential activity, in order to have more vehicles in optimal conditions supporting the trucking companies “.
