COLUMBUS, Ind. — Pricing continues to be the most interesting and watched of the used truck market metrics, says the latest release of the State of the Industry: U.S. Classes 3-8 Used Trucks, published by ACT Research.

In August, pricing was up for all three time period comparisons, month over month, year over year, and year to date. Volumes also increase month over month, but remained well below pace for other time period comparisons.

“One positive note from August activity is that earlier concerns about excess inventory seem to have been relatively isolated and are waning,” said Steve Tam, vice president-commercial vehicle sector with ACT.
