FTR Reports October North American Class 8 Orders at 22,100 Units

FTR reports preliminary North American Class 8 orders for October at 22,100 units, the highest level since November of 2018, but still far below a year ago. October 2019 order activity was the weakest performance for the month since 2016. 
While October orders were the highest this year and up 79% m/m they were 51% lower than October 2018, signifying a subdued beginning to the traditional start of the ordering season. The order level was boosted by a couple of big fleets placing large orders into 2020, but otherwise smaller orders were placed for the first quarter build. Cancellations are expected to remain elevated as OEM’s shake out excess 2019 orders from the backlog. Class 8 orders for the past 12 months have totaled 192,000 units.
