ACT’s Commercial Vehicle Dealer Digest is an executive- and high-level overview of the commercial vehicle retail sales and trends at the dealer level.

Commercial Vehicle Dealer Digest

For more than a decade, ACT Research has gathered used truck sales data from commercial vehicle dealers just like you. We confidentially process this data, build the most robust used truck database in the industry, and utilize the monthly numbers to generate our best-in-class used truck report.

The Commercial Vehicle Dealer Digest is a monthly report that analyzes the commercial vehicle heavy-duty production and retail sales. The Commercial Vehicle Dealer Digest provides information and insights into for-hire, trucking sector trends, publicly traded truckload carriers, intermodal trends, and more relevant information related to dealers.

With this report, you will receive monthly highlights on the commercial trucking sector trends, including those for publicly-traded truckload carriers, rail/intermodal, new Classes 5-8 trucks/tractors, used trucks, and new trailers. The report also includes quick-read graphs and explanatory captions covering the use of truck markets, transportation metrics, economics, and energy prices. Additionally, this digest includes a forecast summary and forecast tables for the U.S. and Canadian Classes 5-8 markets’ retail sales, as well as U.S. trailer production forecast tables

The types of businesses that should be interested in the Commercial Vehicle Dealer Digest are those that need a quick, high-level overview document for their busy commercial vehicle industry executives. Other businesses are using this report to inform them of the state of the heavy-duty market for sales, budgeting, and other short-term forecasts.

“I would recommend ACT as your number 1 ‘go to’ source for industry forecasts and just general industry knowledge…You cannot follow this industry, be part of this industry without knowing what ACT Research is saying…”
