Commercial Vehicle Quarterly Outlook: Robust Demand Meets Constrained Supply

Available to: Truck & Trailer Outlook Clients

Thursday, March 4th, 2021  |  11:00 - 11:45 AM EST

Presenter:  Don Ake and Eric Starks  |  Moderator: Jonathan Starks

In this webinar, we will examine how the commercial equipment markets started off the recovery year of 2021. January production numbers will be compared to the forecast and trends. We will also look at how the current supply-chain situation will impact commercial equipment this year.

  • Class 8 orders have surged. What are the challenges of keeping up with demand?
  • Trailer backlogs are approaching record levels, but production is stable. What are the implications for the second half of the year?
  • Class 6 and 7 truck sales have been slow to recover. Can they catch up to the growth in Class 5?

What is Lorem Ipsum?

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.
