The total sets a new record for used commercial vehicle registrations in a six-month timeframe and represents nearly 68 percent of the commercial vehicle market. Additionally, this figure represents an increase of 28.8 percent over the same timeframe in 2009, reported Polk.

"The significant increase in used vehicle registrations so far this year is indicative of an uptick in the industry with the changeover of the commercial fleet," said Gary Meteer, director, sales and client services, at Polk. "Large fleet owners and operators are upgrading to new vehicles, and therefore the smaller fleet companies and independent owner operators have great opportunities to find available clean used equipment."

The Polk report also includes other commercial market highlights, including new commercial vehicle registration information, geographical registrations, and insight into aftermarket component demand.
