FTR Reports October Preliminary Net Class 8 Orders Negatively Impacted by Clean Up of Long-Term Orders
FTR releases preliminary Class 8 net orders for October at 13,800 units. The reported net order number for the month was negatively impacted by a significant cleanup of long-term, excess, orders by one OEM. With this backlog adjustment factored out, net orders would have been closer to approximately 21,300 units, much above industry expectations and would have been the best monthly order activity since December 2015. The reported 13,800 unit net number was similar to September totals and brings the past twelve months of orders to 188,000 units.
