(Sendout Date - June 05, 2013) -
Busy week, this one. As you read this I'll be at the Transport Canada test track operated by PMG Technologies in Blainville, Quebec where an important anniversary is being celebrated. Then I'm heading further east to Moncton, NB, for the Atlantic T...

(Sendout Date - May 22, 2013) - FRUEHAUF'S HISTORY, BIGGER THAN YOU THINK

Contrary to what my daughters seemed to think when they were about five years old, I don't know everything. That will come as a surprise to absolutely nobody amongst you out there in Readerville, of course, but the girls would have argued my case vehemently 15 or 20 years ago...
The Lockwood Report
(Sendout Date - May 08, 2013) - DETROIT DT12 TRANSMISSION IS READY

Around this time last week I was cruising along a three-lane German highway at a sustained 180 km/h, with stretches at 200, and it felt right as it always does. Safe as houses. Legal, too.

Why safe? A good road surface, for one, but mostly it was about other drivers. ...

DOES ANYONE NOT LIKE OLD TRUCKS?

When you get right down to it, I'm probably much the same as a lot of you folks. I just plain like trucks. The people of trucking are terrific and the industry at large is mighty interesting. But for me it's really all about the trucks.

And that was clear wh...

NO END TO NATURAL GAS NEWS

April 10, 2013 Vol. 9, No. 7

First an admission: not long ago I was writing that, while it offered some clear advantages in some operations, natural gas looked to me like a niche phenomenon. It still has a very long way to go before it becomes fully mainstreamed, ...

INTEGRATION TAKES A NEW TURN
 
Well, I've been waiting for this one. Cummins and Eaton have combined forces to produce a powertrain package that will combat the idea that only fully integrated manufacturers can ...

First off, let me apologize for our gaffe a little while ago -- this newsletter was sent out without its... well, without its newsletter. I say 'our' gaffe but it was really just mine. Sorry, folks. Probably won't happen again.

AWARDS AND MILESTONES

This time out I'm just going to do a round-up of the latest news. I'll focus on things you might not have heard about but let's start with the obvious, the winners of the American Truck Dealers (ATD)  2013 Commercial Truck of the Year award. At the top ...

The Lockwood Report
(Sendout Date - January 30, 2013) -

Alright, let me continue what I started a couple of weeks ago, the second half of a very personal selection, my favorite 10 new products of 2012. Like the first five, these come in no particular order. I'm not ranking them, just noting the introductions that particularly caught my eye. Some are obviously significant in a big way, others...

Courage is required to choose 10 excellent products from the array of introductions this past year, and there's no big jury to hide within. People will disagree; some will complain about not being represented here. It's just me making the call, so let me declare at the outset th...
