Class 8 Orders Rise 27.4% in September

New Class 8 truck orders climbed 27.4% in September in the eighth straight month of year-over-year growth, according to preliminary figures from ACT Research.

North American truck makers received about 20,100 net orders last month, the strongest total since May and up from 15,780 in the same month a year ago, ACT reported Oct. 3.

On a sequential basis, September’s order intake rose 2.3% from August’s total of 19,649.

Through three quarters, cumulative 2013 orders stand at 189,505, a 15.3% gain compared with 164,401 in the first nine months of 2012.
