Class 8 Orders for December Slightly Higher than November
January 04, 2013
Eric Starks, president of FTR commented, "December orders were disappointing and were at the low end of expectations. This confirms our forecast for a weaker start to 2013. It is possible that fleets have been sitting on the sidelines waiting for a resolution to the fiscal cliff. If so, we would expect to see some better numbers in January."
Final data for December will be available from FTR later in the month as part of its North American Commercial Truck & Trailer Outlook service.
