Fleet Equipment, a sister publication to AMN, is live on -ite at Heavy Duty Aftermarket Week taking place this week in Grapevine, Texas. FE Editor Jason Morgan is taking it all in and has shared some highlights so far.
Heavy Duty Aftermarket Dialogue (HDAD), hosted by MEMA and MacKay and Co., is the opening act for Heavy Duty Aftermarket Week. The event brings together heavy-duty vehicle suppliers, OEMs, and heavy-duty aftermarket participants to discuss the latest trends. Morgan caught some of the conversation – which includes talk about supply chain challenges, electrification, data and connectivity, logistics and more.
Specific to the aftermarket, the discussion took a closer look at heavy-duty aftermarket parts pricing trends and predictions, Morgan reported.
“Feeling the pain of parts pricing? Hopefully there’s some comfort in knowing that so is everyone else. Dave Kalvelage, client consultant and analyst, MacKay and Co., provided an insight-packed presentation on heavy-duty aftermarket parts pricing trends and predictions. So, the big question is: Is parts pricing relief on its way?” Morgan asked.
