More than 100 companies have already announced plans to introduce new work trucks and equipment at Work Truck Week 2019.

The Work Truck Show, North America's largest work truck event, runs March 5-8 at Indiana Convention Center in Indianapolis, Indiana. Educational sessions, Green Truck Summit, Fleet Technical Congress and Manufacturer and Distributor Innovation Conference begin March 5, and the exhibit hall is open March 6-8.

There's no better place to see what's new and what's coming from the industry's leading OEMs. Chevrolet Commercial Vehicles, Ford Commercial Vehicles, Freightliner Custom Chassis Corporation, Freightliner Trucks, Hino Trucks, International Truck, Isuzu Commercial Truck of America Inc., Kenworth Truck Company, Mack Trucks Inc., Mercedes-Benz Vans, Mitsubishi Fuso Truck of America Inc., Nissan Commercial Vehicles, Peterbilt Motors Company, Ram Commercial, Volvo Trucks and Western Star Trucks will exhibit at the event, with 15 of them also delivering exclusive chassis update sessions. During each update session, company representatives provide insights into their future plans related to the work truck industry, share technical information on latest chassis specifications and designs, and review body and equipment installation options. Ford, FCCC, Freightliner, International, Mack, Mitsubishi Fuso, Nissan and Ram also scheduled press conferences at the Show.

To help attendees plan which booths to visit, 90 exhibitors are showcasing new products online in advance of the event as part of The Work Truck Show's exclusive New Product Spotlight and Green Product Showcase programs. Offerings range from transmissions and suspensions to trucks and bodies. They include a variety of innovative power solutions, cargo management systems and vocational equipment from snowplows to cranes. If it goes in or on a vocational truck — or helps an upfitter install equipment — you can find it at the Show. To learn more about these products, visit the featured exhibitors section of the online floorplan at worktruckshow.com/floorplan.

"With all the major players here, The Work Truck Show is the best place to take the pulse of the commercial vehicle community and find the equipment and education you need to continue to improve your operations."

Show attendees will have the opportunity to check out products from 26 first-time exhibitors in a special New Exhibitor Pavilion that opens an hour before the exhibit hall on Wednesday, March 6 and Thursday, March 7. It's located across from the Hall I exhibit hall entrance.
