New analysis from Frost & Sullivan (automotive.frost.com), Maximizing Opportunities in a Challenging Service Industry, finds that the commercial fleet industry faces several challenges with severe implications for the market. How commercial fleets choose to deal with these issues will affect their profitability and service effectiveness.

If you are interested in a virtual brochure, which provides manufacturers, end users, and other industry participants with an overview of opportunities in a challenging service industry, then send an email to Sara Villarruel, Corporate Communications, at sara.villarruel[.]frost.com, with your full name, company name, title, telephone number, company email address, company website, city, state and country. Upon receipt of the above information, an overview will be sent to you by email.

An economy that depends heavily on the movement of goods requires a reliable on-road transportation system. Efficiency has gained greater importance as freight volumes have grown. In the near term, freight volumes will likely grow at an annual rate of six percent and profits will continue to be squeezed.

The increasing demand for replacement services and maintenance support strains the aftermarket service industry. This presents numerous challenges and several attractive opportunities.

"The North American heavy-duty truck aftermarket currently offers tremendous growth opportunities to both the product and service segments," says Frost & Sullivan Senior Consultant Mary-Beth Kellenberger. "The distribution structure faces changes to the competitive landscape and market dynamics, while the product side must adapt to pressures emanating from increasing vehicle electronic content and the introduction of proprietary technologies by truckmakers."

Proactive and innovative service companies can turn this situation to their advantage by creating new structures that can better manage rising operating costs, technology complexity, inventory management issues, and the rising influence of original equipment manufacturers.

The decline in the number of fleets performing on-site repairs and complex system maintenance has increased opportunities for independent repair facilities and dealers. Central to this repair equation is the availability of qualified technicians. Even though the overall number of technicians will likely increase, industry participants remain concerned about the decreased skill level and quality of technicians available in the commercial vehicle industry. Low wages, a dirty work environment, and lack of resources continue to deter workers.

The industry has to stop relying on market forces to provide technicians and must make concerted efforts to procure the necessary talent. Participants must devise viable and cost-effective talent retention strategies as repair services become increasingly competitive.

"The service industry must look at the ways in which it can secure as well as foster existing talent to support the growing repair demand," notes Kellenberger. "The time is right to test the waters with new strategies for talent retention, technician development and service delivery."
