FTR Reports Final Net Trailer Orders for December at 34,000 Units – a 35% Y/Y Increase
FTR reports final December net trailer orders at 34,000 units, down 5% m/m but up 35% y/y. Orders were robust for the second straight month and exceeded expectations. December trailer orders were led by good dry van activity and very strong refrigerated van numbers. Most vocational trailer segments showed a healthy increase as well. Trailer orders totaled 219,000 units in 2016. Backlogs rose significantly again and are now at the highest point since June. Production fell due to the holidays but was much better than expected.
