This report is a rigorous investigation and analysis of North American manufacturers and markets for commercial van bodies mounted on cutaway chassis, strip chassis and medium/heavy truck cab chassis.
50+ manufacturers have been analyzed and aggregated into an analytical framework to define the business of van body fabrication.
Van body types covered include parcel delivery vans (PDVs), dry freight (box) vans, refrigerated/insulated vans, walk-in vans (stepvans), walk-in "style" vans, and curtainside vans.
Van body fabricators are on the cusp of the consumer-led growth in residential deliveries. This single factor is changing a once-staid business of undifferentiated box-like products into an industry that requires a solutions approach and innovative thinking on design and functionality. New demands such as last-mile delivery of fresh and frozen foods, multi-compartment fridge/freezer and dry goods combinations, are impact factors that are changing the landscape for the manufacturers of van bodies in North America.
Near-term, ready-made cargo vans such as Sprinter are providing vigorous competition at lower load ranges. Further into the future, developments in drones touted by Amazon and traditional delivery services such as UPS may loom, but competitive impact is a sheer speculation at this point. Accordingly, vehicle-based deliveries, whether truck vans or ready vans, will see significant growth with the unrelenting underlying trend to residential deliveries.
These and other key aspects of the business of van/body fabrication for truck chassis are the subject of this leading report compiled, through numerous industry interviews and deep mining of internet secondary sources.
