There are more commercial motor vehicles abroad than there are in the U.S.A., there are more commercial vehicles being manufactured abroad than there are in the U.S.A., and the commercial vehicle exports of foreign countries far exceed those of the U.S.A.

Details of the operations of these fleets, and their vehicle purchasing patterns, are reported in Paper No. 975A of January 13, 1965.
