According to FTR, even though orders are down, they are showing gains in 2021 against an underperforming market.

During November, orders for Class 8 trucks in the United States (EU) Sales reached 34,300 units, down from a record high of 56,000 in September And that represents a monthly decline of 20 percent.

On this subject, FTR Executive Director and Director of Intelligence Jonathan Starks said that, Apparently most of the year is set for production in 2023This means there will be further easing of levels when the market heads into the new year.

The market remains strong despite economic uncertainties, and production will be somewhat constrained by supply chains and labor.”
