Trucking companies order more big rigs

Sep 14, 2017 at 01:17 PM CST

Trucking companies in August ordered 21,200 class 8 trucks, the rigs used for long-haul freight deliveries, continuing an upward sales trend that began earlier this year.

The orders this year have exceeded industry analyst expectations, according to ACT Research.

The sales are positive for the industry, which has suffered from weak demand because there have been more trucks in the market than freight available to haul.
