Short 2022 Model-Year to Increase Pent-Up Fleet Demand in 2023

The 74th State of the Fleet Industry video produced by Automotive Fleet offers an updated look at the state of the fleet market as presented by AF Editor Mike Antich. Today's topics include: - The 2022 model-year has closed for all intents and purposes, with new-vehicle ordering for most makes and models of common fleet vehicles now past final order deadline dates. - The acquisition of 2022 model year trucks by fleet will be challenging for those who missed the final order cut-offs. - Those 2022 models still available for ordering have disclaimers that production and delivery dates cannot be guaranteed. - The anticipation is that 2023 model-year ordering will be very intense due to heightened fleet demand from those fleets that missed final order deadlines for 2022.

Happy Veterans Day From Paradise Fleet

Happy Veterans Day

On November 11, 1919, U.S. President Woodrow Wilson issued a message to his countrymen on the first Armistice Day (changed to Veterans Day in 1954), in which he expressed what he felt the day meant to Americans:


The White House, November 11, 1919.

A year ago today our enemies laid down their arms in accordance with an armistice which rendered them impotent to renew hostilities, and gave to the world an assured opportunity to reconstruct its shattered order and to work out in peace a new and more just set of international relations. The soldiers and people of the European Allies had fought and endured for more than four years to uphold the barrier of civilization against the aggressions of armed force. We ourselves had been in the conflict for something more than a year and a half.

With splendid forgetfulness of mere personal concerns, we remodeled our industries, concentrated our financial resources, increased our agricultural output, and assembled a great army, so that at the last our power was a decisive factor in the victory. We were able to bring the vast resources, material and moral, of a great and free people to the assistance of our associates in Europe who had suffered and sacrificed without limit in the cause for which we fought.

Out of this victory there arose new possibilities of political freedom and economic concert. The war showed us the strength of great nations acting together for high purposes, and the victory of arms foretells the enduring conquests which can be made in peace when nations act justly and in furtherance of the common interests of men.

To us, in America, the reflections of Armistice Day will be filled with solemn pride in the heroism of those who died in the country's service, and with gratitude for the victory, both because of the thing from which it has freed us and because of the opportunity it has given America to show her sympathy with peace and justice in the councils of nations.
