Today Freightliner Corporation, based in the US city of Portland, Oregon, is a leader in sales of truck equipment in the US. But it was not always so. The success of the company is the result of hard work, long-term marketing research and competent price policy. The history of Freightliner began with the company Consolidated Freightlines, created back in 1929 and was looking for ways to reduce the cost of truck operation. By the way, even then the firm introduced aluminum parts on its vehicles.
Since then, a lot of trials fell to the share of the Portland company: both litigation, and downtime during the Second World War, and a change of name. In 1981 Freightliner Corporation was bought by the German concern Daimler-Benz. A close American-German cooperation began, the fruits of which were not long in coming. In 1996, Freightliner already controlled 29.4 percent of the 8th class truck market with a gross weight of over 14.97 tons.
The firm began to invest the earned money not only in the development of its own production, but also in the purchase of other companies.
In 1997, Freightliner Corporation acquired the Ford Motor Company, which produced heavy trucks Cargo, Aeromax and Louisville with a gross mass of over 10 tons. On the basis of these productions, the Sterling Truck Company was established. Then the oldest American firehouse American La France was bought. The production program for Freightliner in 1999 includes several families of civil, military and fire trucks. Cars are collected not only in the US, but also in Mexico.
