Ford carrier’s strengths
Mc Louis isn’t the first camper or pickup truck manufacturer to diversify its offering at Ford this season. One of the assets is clearly industrial. In this period of shortages and delivery delays, it’s better to diversify your sources of supply. If the caravan manufacturer orders smaller quantities from several suppliers, it will have less difficulty procuring the chassis.
