Class 8 orders slow in September

by Truck News

COLUMBUS, Ind. – According to ACT Research, Class 8 orders continue to fall according to preliminary data.

For the month of September, 13,900 Class 8 vehicle net orders were booked.

“Owing to September’s dubious distinction as the weakest net order month of the year, seasonal adjustment boosts the month’s intake to 16,100 units,” said Steve Tam, ACT’s vice-president.  “At 28% below September 2015’s intake, it remains crystal clear that truckers are still struggling to balance excess freight hauling capacity in the context of anemic freight growth.”
