January Trailer Orders Rise 18%

Transport Topics reported new trailer orders rose 18% in January from a year ago to 29,853 units, citing ACT Research. The total was the fifth highest in the past year, after December and October, which topped 40,000, and September and November, which topped 30,000.

“All in all, it was a pretty decent number for a January,” said Frank Maly, ACT’s director of commercial vehicle transportation analysis and research. “It’s down from December, but the way things ended last year, you would kind of anticipate anything was going to be down from a very strong fourth quarter,” he said.
