Best Year Ever for Trailer Orders: FTR
U.S. trailer orders for 2014 totaled over 360,000, by far the best order year ever, according to FTR Associates.
Dry van orders set an all-time record, as OEMs aggressively sought orders to book into the third and fourth quarters. Refrigerated van orders were also at an impressive pace.
Net orders came in at 45,500 in December, the second-highest month ever recorded, just 1.5% below October 2014.
