Trailer Output Report and Archive

The Trailer Output Report tracks the annual production of the largest trailer manufacturers in North America. Obtained by interviewing key managers of each company, this survey is conducted annually by Trailer/Body Builders. It lists the production of individual manufacturers—including the number of truck trailers, containers, and container chassis that were produced during the year. Last year’s rankings are of greatest interest to most people, but we also maintain this online archive of reports going back to 1998.

This report is entirely the work of Trailer/Body Builders and should not be confused with any other survey.
