Almost 2,000 white-collar workers at Freightliner were offered voluntary buyouts. The company, owned by DaimlerChrysler, is cutting jobs because of decreased demand for the heavy-duty trucks it produces in Portland.

Freightliner will still make larger rigs for construction and logging operations along with military trucks. Currently, the company produces about 74 trucks per day.
