Seeing the entire board is important to understanding the game from each angle. That's why ACT Research is so diligent about the production of the U.S. Used Trucks Classes 3-8 report. While ACT's N.A. CV Outlook and State of the Industry: N.A. Classes 5-8 reports break down production and sales, you can't understand the market in it's entirety without knowing what trucks are already on the road. With a database of more than 700,000 transactions dating from 1996, the U.S. Used Truck report covers:
- Monthly market indicators for Classes 3-5, Classes 6-7, and Class 8 used vehicles: units, average selling price, average miles, average age
- GVW class data segmented by sales channels (auction, retail, wholesale)
- Includes industry sales and inventory estimates based on a sample of participating dealers
- PowerPoint graph pack
- Preliminary “flash” report published on 12th (or first business day after); full report on the 25th (or first business day after)
