Podcast: Nate Meyer From Stoops Freightliner Discusses COVID-19 Impacts & Adjustments Within New Truck Market

The latest addition to the IN-SITE 2020 Podcast Series’ list of offerings looks at what has been taking place in the new-truck equipment market during 2020. Our feature interview for this podcast will be with Nate Meyer, who is part of the Equipment Sales Team at Stoops Freightliner.

In addition to our conversation with Nate, listeners will also hear a segment with Jason Williams, the President of ES, and Jeff Tacker, the COO of ES. Jason and Jeff will be discussing the strong working relationship that ES has developed over the years with Stoops Freightliner and Truck Country – which stands today as the largest Freightliner dealer group in the United States.

With years of experience in both sales and maintenance, Nate understands the market and the considerations that come into play when considering the purchase of a new truck. As everyone in the trucking industry knows, 2020 has been a year filled with numerous twists and turns revolving around COVID-19 and the fallout from the global pandemic

During our IN-SITE 2020 Podcast interview, we asked Nate to look back at the first six months of 2020 and to discuss what he has seen in the new-truck equipment market. We also talked with Nate on some of the changes that Stoops and Truck Country put into place in response to COVID-19 across all areas of the dealership’s operations.

In looking at the remainder of the year and going forward into 2021, Nate walks us through some of the key questions that professional drivers and fleet owners need to ask themselves when considering the purchase of a new truck.
