Durable Goods Rise, Led by Aircraft Orders

Durable goods orders jumped 9.9% in September, led by a surge in aircraft orders, the Commerce Department said Thursday.

Bookings for non-defense capital equipment, excluding aircraft, were little changed after dipping 0.2% in August, Bloomberg reported.

Economists had forecast a 7.5% gain in over overall durable goods orders, Bloomberg said.

Durable goods include large items such as refrigerators and air conditioners. Trucking is a major beneficiary of durable goods manufacturing, hauling both components and finished goods.
