The COVID-19 pandemic has taken us on a rollercoaster ride that has worn down even the most avid of thrill seekers. However, the commercial vehicle industry has been a beacon of resiliency and steadfastness for those who keep the wheels turning on medium duty, vocational, off-highway, and on-highway trucks. In my opinion, the industry has ridden the rollercoaster with unmatched patience and determination.

Industry Insight

For a more focused look at what the industry has done so far and is planning to do going forward regarding the continued COVID-19 saga, HDMA Insight is stepping up with data designed to help the industry learn, adapt, and grow together. Led by HDMA’s Director of Market Research and Analysis, Richard Anderson, we’re pleased to be able to provide HDMA members data on membership mitigation and business continuity efforts in two formats.

We are currently surveying members for our Business Benchmarks Report, asking respondents to provide information on COVID-19’s impact from every facet of operation. The survey also takes a deep dive on return-to-work procedures as office reopenings coincide with the surge of Delta variant infections. The complete report will be sent to all survey participants. You can complete the survey here.

We are also preparing for the August Pulse Webinar and Report, where members can benchmark business’s operations on a myriad of topics relating to COVID-19 and the workplace, including operational shifts, office and manufacturing protocols, personnel retention and 2022 budgetary planning. Register to attend the upcoming Pulse now.

Being a supplier to the commercial vehicle industry is tough in the best of conditions and given the pandemic and the flood of supply issues, the market has challenged even the most resilient HDMA member company. I think facts are our best ally when facing turmoil. We hope that you will tune in, interact, and engage collectively for our mutual benefit.
