We here at Baltimore Freightliner-Western Star never grow tired of the seemingly endless stream of good news about the trucking industry. And lucky for us- yet again, commercial truck sales have shown themselves to be not only holding strong but increasing, according to a recent article published in Transport Topics. Read on to find out more about what’s happened now and what it means for commercial truck dealers nationwide!
The latest report of Class 8 truck sales shows that in the month of March, total truck sales increased by 25 percent compared to March of last year. An incredible 20,625 Class 8 trucks were sold during this time period. The high demand bodes well for commercial truck dealers; it shows that the industry is leaving behind years of economic recession and coming back better and stronger than ever.
Top brand such as Daimler Trucks North America’s Freightliner were a part of the Class 8 truck sales surge in March. Over 6,700 Freightliners were sold, constituting a jump of 28 percent from the previous year. Western Star, another DTNA subsidiary, saw their total commercial truck sales double compared to last year’s figures.
