FTR: Strong Class 8 orders in June



BLOOMINGTON, Ind. – June marks the seventeenth consecutive month that Class 8 truck orders have increased year-over-year according to FTR data.

According to the preliminary data released recently, Class 8 truck net orders for the month of June were 26,255  units – more than  40% up from the same month last year.

“June’s numbers are significant, especially considering that order activity typically slows when summer starts,” said Don Ake, FTR vice-president of commercial vehicles. “It wouldn’t have been surprising to see Class 8 orders under 20,000 units for June, so a 26,000 level is outstanding.  FTR has been forecasting a very robust second half of the year and the positive June numbers confirm our outlook.”
