Harley-Davidson Outsources Fleet Operations

April 28, 2009

MILWAUKEE – Harley-Davidson Inc. in Milwaukee, Wis., has completed the transition of its U.S. transportation fleet operations to a third-party provider, according to the CoStar Group.

The company, which experienced a 12-percent decline motorcycle sales in the first quarter, now expects approximately 300 to 400 additional production jobs will be eliminated over the next two years. In January, the company initially estimated the planned volume reduction and restructuring actions would result in the elimination of about 1,100 jobs over the course of 2009 and 2010, consisting of about 300 non-production, primarily salaried positions and about 800 hourly production positions.
