ACT Research: January Trailer Orders Strongest Since 2006

January trailer net orders eased from December to 26,000 units, but they were the strongest orders for the first month of the year since 2006. This update on industry performance was reported in the latest State of the Industry: U.S. Trailers published by ACT Research Co. (ACT) February 23, 2012.
 “The trailer industry is now entering its third year of the recovery cycle,” reported Frank Maly, Director-CV Transportation with ACT Research. “Rising backlogs and low levels of cancellation activity add to the strength of demand for
trailers. Availability of component supplies will support slow growth in build in 2012, but quantum leaps in production do not appear to be in the cards at this time,” he added.
