DODGE TRUCK SHIPMENTS SHOW 77 PER CENT. GAIN

The Ludington Daily News
May 26, 1929


Registering a gain of 77 per cent. in shipments of commercial cars and trucks for March compared to February, the truck division of Dodge Brothers is increasing production facilities to meet the record breaking demand from domestic and foreign markets.

In carrying out this production schedule, a record of seven months' standing was broken with the shipment of 331 trucks on March 30, exceeding any single day since August 22, 1928.

"Six cylinder engines, four wheel brakes and four speed transmissions on the heavier types of Dodge trucks provide speed and safety necessary for the most economical distribution of merchandise, whether it be on the country highways or city streets," said Shirley G. Myers.

"The fifty-one types of trucks built by Dodge Brothers represent five capacities range from the light delivery Merchants Express to the heavy duty three-ton truck, and meet the requirements of 96 per cent. of all transportation."
