Nov. 6 – Navistar International has secured a deal with Wal-Mart to provide the company with all of its premium conventional trucks in 2000 and 2001. In addition, Wal-Mart will buy 2,200 International 9200 models through the end of 1999.
Production for Wal-Mart’s fleet will begin next month with 150 vehicles. Wal-Mart bought its first International truck in 1984.
“We made the switch to International’s premium conventional product for a variety of reasons,” said Dub Ray, purchasing manager for Wal-Mart, “including driver preference for the conventional cab and the good resale market for long-nosed conventionals.”
