“Obviously, the explosion of the freight market due to Coronavirus is a major factor, but a more acute reason is a shortage of parts making it impossible for manufacturers to keep up production at normal levels.”
It’s difficult to foresee what may be ahead in the used truck and trailer market, but it is expected that the demand for freight as well as trucks & trailers will last throughout the year. To further complicate the situation, Freightliner just announced that they are shutting down production of class 8 trucks yet again for the next 2 weeks due to parts shortages. Due to these market conditions, it will continue to be a challenge to find used semi-trucks and reefer trailers for sale. The key to success is to make a good relationship with your salesperson.
