Trailer/Body Builders’ annual report on truck trailer production, included in the February issue of Trailer/Body Builders, is now available online.
This annual report tracks the yearly production of the largest trailer manufacturers in North America. Obtained by interviewing key managers of each company, this survey is conducted each year 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.
The 25 largest truck-trailer manufacturers in North America (plus three runners-up) produced 291,506 complete trailers in calendar year 2014. This is 20 percent more than the same trailer builders produced in 2013 and a new record for the 21st century.
However, it is not an all-time record. That honor belongs to the year 1999, when the 25-plus manufacturers built 301,864 trailers and another 37,849 container chassis, for a total of almost 340,000 complete trailers.
