What is the state of Class 8 and trailer backlogs?

Don Ake covers current and record backlogs regarding the heavy truck and trailer segments.

This Q&A response from The FTR Experts came from our January State of Freight - 2022 Transportation Market Update webinar. View the video and the key takeaways below.

Key Takeaways:
  • Once supply chain issues subside and OEMs begin to take on more commitments, there will be heavy production and a new record backlog.
  • Trailer OEMs are managing their backlog a little tighter than Class 8 is, leading to a wider gap between current and record backlogs for trailer.
