Is the ad correct in stating 200,000 trucks?

The logistics of fuel, oil and spares makes the mind boggle. Let alone finding, equipping and feeding the drivers.  Forget the Soldiers who went to fight.

A quick search on just the Bedford MW states 66,000 produced so between all the other models including civilian models used 200,000 looks reasonable.   

Logistics many say is the main reason the Germans lost the war.  After failing to capture the Russian Oil Fields they were increasing their use of Horses again by mid-war.
