It comes as no surprise that after an impressive third quarter for sales for Class 8 trucks that the industry is now seeing an eight-year high for Class 8 registrations, according to a recent piece in Transport Topics. The rising numbers are not only good for the manufacturers of these highly sought-after trucks, but for fleet owners and business owners alike who are benefitting from the addition of new models and better technology. So is now the perfect time to add a Class 8 vehicle to your fleet? It looks like it just might be- read on to find out more!
Eight years ago, fleet owners bought new trucks en masse in the fourth quarter of the sales year, but since then sales and registrations declined. Not so for this quarter; a whopping 22.3% increase in new Class 8 registrations shows that the trucking industry is back, better than ever, and nearly 60,000 registrations stronger than it has been in years past.
The higher number of Class 8 registration corresponds with fleet owners everywhere choosing to expand their fleets, hire more truck drivers, and create a business model that will last for years to come. The new safety features and improved fuel efficiency of Class 8 trucks from Freightliner, Western Star, and other top brands are making new trucks more appealing investments.
