ACT Research: Class 8 demand rose faster than supply


COLUMBUS, Ind. – The demand for Class 8 trucks rose faster than the supply for the second month in a row,  according to the most recent ACT For-Hire Trucking Index from ACT Research.

This marks the  second time this year and only the fourth time in 19 months the demand for Class 8 trucks rose faster than the supply/

Steve Tam, ACT’s vice-president-Commercial Vehicle Sector, noted that the balance between supply and demand is still at the mercy of the widespread macro-inventory overhang.

“This is only the second time in 10 months that freight volumes showed any meaningful increase. Time will tell whether this is the beginning of a trend or a temporary or transient anomaly,” he said.
