COLUMBUS, Ind. — Class 8 orders remained above 20,000 units for a seventh consecutive month in April, rising to their second highest volume in sixteen months, according to the latest figures form ACT Research. April Class 8 net orders totalled just over 23,200 units. Medium-duty net orders totalled 16,740 units, the best order volume in six months and the second best in the past 26 month.

“Class 8 orders year-to-date bound for the US, Canada, and Mexico all continue to trend above year ago levels. Demand from Mexico is particularly strong,” said Kenny Vieth, ACT’s president and senior analyst. “Class 8 cancellations remained in record low territory in April, which is a positive indicator for stronger demand. As has been the case this cycle, backlogs for the medium duty market remain thin relative to build. Per-day build hit its second highest level in a year in April.”
