Excerpt from Motor Truck Transportation: The Principle Governing Its Success

In 1904, there were 411 produced. Seven years later, or in 1911, the yearly production had grown to about 11,000; while last year (1920) 335,000 motor trucks were manufactured. Thus, the industry is only fifteen years old, and it has made its greatest strides during the last five years. There are today about 900,000 motor trucks in service.

The great war is perhaps more than any other factor responsible for this. That conflict, in which so much depended on transportation, both "over there" and "over here," proved beyond a doubt the reliability and utility of the motor truck. It is now used in every line of industry.

The motor truck has demonstrated its dependability as a mechanical device. That it can be an economical means of transportation has also been proven. Its further use depends not so much on truck mechanics and design as it does upon a knowledge of how the truck can be utilized and upon a conception of its place and possibilities in the transportation system of the country.

But the field of usefulness of the motor truck cannot be extended to its full extent unless the principles governing its most successful utilization are generally understood. Ignorance is the one factor that may prevent the new method of transportation from becoming a cogent element in economical distribution: a vital element, because in many instances it is the cheapest method as well as the most efficient, for haulage.
