For sales projections and budgeting and many more reasons, understanding the current state of the industry is why ACT Research developed it’s State of the Industry series, particularly the N.A. Classes 5-8 report.
The foundation of this report is the monthly data provided to ACT Research by the OEMs. This direct access to the manufacturers is critical to the report’s success and insights into the current market. ACT releases both preliminary and finalized numbers based on the OEMs data as well as a complete report on the state of the industry.
This report is complete with:
- Monthly market indicators for Class 5 and Classes 6-7 chassis and Class 8 trucks and tractors: backlog, build, inventory, new orders, cancellations, net orders, and retail sales.
- Class 5 and Classes 6-7 segmented by trucks, buses, RVs, and step vans, Class 8 segmented by tractors with and without sleepers and trucks with and without sleepers.
- Executive Summary
- Rolling six-month industry build plan
- Backlog timing analysis
- Historical data (1996 to current)
- PowerPoint graph pack
- Preliminary net orders for the previous month published
This report is a great compliment to ACT’S N.A. CV OUTLOOK report as it gives the monthly, tactical data to support the OUTLOOK.
