Record Truck Sales In 2016

Cumberland Business Chamber is surrounded by dozens of road transport companies which makes this announcement very relevant. 2016 was the best year for sales of new trucks since the GFC hit. The Truck Industry Council reported that 32,964 trucks as well as heavy vans were sold…961 more than 2015. The best result in almost 10 years. TIC commented, “The results displayed in the fourth quarter of 2016 are probably more reflective of the business confidence we can expect to see in 2017 and if these sales trends continue, particularly at the heavy-duty end of the market, 2017 should see increased new truck sales as business confidence continues to grow.”
