FTR Reports North American Class 8 Orders for June at Historic Highs

 FTR reports preliminary North American Class 8 orders for June at 41,800 units, making it the highest June ever recorded, 140% above a year ago.  North American Class 8 orders have now exceeded 40,000 units in four of the six months in 2018.  Fleets are ordering such large numbers of trucks that the OEM production cannot keep up with demand due to component shortfalls.  The backlogs are being moved out further, which is pushing fleets to get orders in sooner rather than later so they can find a build slot.  North American Class 8 orders for the past twelve months have now totaled 411,000 units.
