COLUMBUS, Ind. — Trailer orders improved in April, following recent lackluster performance, although the gains were not universal across all trailer categories, according to ACT Research.
“The industry booked22,017 net orders in April.While that was a 12.3% month-over-month increase, the widely ranging performance across the various trailer types was striking. Dry vans supported the total industry with a 41.9% month-over-month gain, while reefer vans posted a 33.7% month-over-month decline,” said Frank Maly, director of CV transportation with ACT. “The reefer weakness was entirely from weak new orders, as cancellations were insignificant.”
