Class 8 Orders Rose by 23.2% Last Month

In North America, it would appear that Class 8 orders have approached new levels and it looks like they have reached the second-highest volume of the year. This might have looked like a one-off event though, and so far it is not looking like a consistent rebound. Test orders look to have risen by 23.2% and now they are at 16,000. When you compare this to one year ago, you will soon find that this stands at 12,979. ACT research have reported that this is the truck maker's initial data. The increase looks to have been the first since January and it is only the third since October. January saw the most orders this year as well, and that stands at 17,700.

With everything slowing down, it's safe to say that the industry has been affected severely. Everyone is a very long way away from the normal market but this looks to be a step in the right direction. When you look at things historically, you will see that this number is pretty boring, and it's a very average number. When you look at how horrible these last few months have been however, you will soon see that this is a signal that there are better things to come. We have busted out of the bottom and now it is time to come out, says Don Ake who is the Vice President of FTR.
Who knows what the future holds, but right now, it looks like more needs to be done to try and bolster other industries, like those who work in a driving agency Ireland.
