Underlying the Manufacture of Van Bodies
2016 – 2020 Analysis & Outlook

This report is a rigorous investigation and analysis of North American manufacturers and markets for commercial van bodies mounted on cutaway chassis, strip chassis and medium/heavy truck cab chassis.

VAN BODY TYPES

Parcel Delivery Vans (PDVs)
Dry Freight (Box) Vans
Refrigerated/Insulated Vans
Walk-in Vans (Stepvans)
Walk-in "Style" Vans
Curtainside Vans

50+ manufacturers analyzed and aggregated into an analytical framework to
define the business of van body fabrication.

Van body fabricators are on the cusp of the consumer-led growth in residential deliveries. This single factor is changing a once-staid business of undifferentiated box-like products into an industry that requires a solutions approach and innovative thinking on design and functionality. New demands such as last-mile delivery of fresh and frozen foods, multi-compartment fridge/freezer and dry goods combinations, are impact factors that are changing the landscape for the 50+ manufacturers of van bodies in North America.

Near-term, ready-made cargo vans such as Sprinter are providing vigorous competition at lower load ranges. Further into the future, developments in drones touted by Amazon and traditional delivery services such as UPS may loom, but competitive impact is a sheer speculation at this point. Accordingly, vehicle-based deliveries, whether truck vans or ready vans, will see significant growth with the unrelenting underlying trend to residential deliveries.

These and other key aspects of the business of van/body fabrication for truck chassis are the subject of this leading report compiled by STN, through numerous industry interviews and deep mining of internet secondary sources.

A $1 billion industry—largest single vocational truck/body segment

The deliverables of this market research report are as follows:

Part I. Analysis of Van Body Manufacturing for Commercial Applications in North America (“Analysis”)

Part II. Database / Directory of Van Body Manufacturers in North America (“Database / Directory”)

(STN clients do not need to purchase this project if already subscribed to the 13-segment study:
Vocational Truck / Body Industry in North America)

About The Deliverables

  • The Analysis provides a vista view of this difficult-to-analyze vocational segment, due to extreme fragmentation. Many small players at local/regional level participate successfully in this activity, but complicate the market size and competitive analysis picture, compared to the handful of national manufacturers.

  • The Database/Directory collates key information, with units and sales of each company, in an invaluable contact matrix on key executives in Sales, Marketing, Production/Manufacturing, Supply Chain/Purchasing, Engineering, R&D, etc. This data is not from a “list” source, but is expertly put together through a mix of personal contact and database mining. The Database is in PDF format, but an Excel spreadsheet can be provided upon request.
