October Trailer Orders Up 43% Month Over Month

COLUMBUS, IN – The fall order season for trailers saw a 43 percent month over month net order gain, for a total net order of 24,900 units.

That’s a six percent increase since last year, according to a report published by Americas Commercial Transportation (ACT) Research Co.

“Improvement in orders was widespread in October, as seven of ten trailer categories were positive month over month, with most of those posting solid double-digit gains,” said Frank Maly, director of CV transportation analysis and research at ACT.

“Cancellations were low, which continues to indicate both an absence of speculative orders in the backlog as well as a confirmation that trailers on the order board are truly needed,” he added.
