Preliminary net orders for trailers in April fell to just 300 bookings, the lowest level since 1990.The 95% drop in orders from March and 98% decline from April 2019 put orders during the past 12 months at 162,000, according to FTR Transportation Intelligence.The impact of the health crisis on manufacturing and an already slowing market for equipment combined to cause many fleets to effectively close their order books and cancel or push out orders scheduled for 2020 delivery."There are still way too many uncertainties present for fleets to buy new trailers in large numbers," said Don Ake, FTR vice president of commercial vehicles. "They will take the minimum number of trailers needed in the short-run and then increase quantities dependent on the speed and size of the recovery. Downward trendExcept for 2016, trailer shipments have risen every year since 2011. They set a record in 2018 that was broken in 2019 when 328,000 units were shipped and 333,000 units were produced, according to ACT Research.A pullback to an estimated 239,000 units in 2020 was ACT's initial projection, in line with typical replacement demand of 220,000 units. But the COVID-19 pandemic led ACT to reduce its estimate to 146,000 units, a 56% decline from 2019. FTR anticipates new trailer production to be approximately 155,000 new trailers in 2020, down 53% from 2019."Orders should improve soon, but are expected to remain modest for the next few months,"Ake said.Industry consolidationThe pullback raises questions about the financial viability of the industry's weaker players being able to survive the economic downturn.Wabash National (NYSE: WNC), the only publicly traded trailer maker, said it is too soon to predict."I'm not going to speculate on acquisition roll-up or consolidation activity; that's too early to talk about," Wabash National CEO Brent Yeagy said in response to an analyst question on the company's first-quarter earnings call on May 14.Specialty equipment builders could be impacted, said Mike Baudendistel, a FreightWaves market expert."We could see consolidation among some of the smaller trailer manufacturers within the industry's top 25," he said. "Equipment for industrial activity, such as flatbed trailers or trailers for logging, are likely to be disproportionately hurt by a lack of new construction activity." April shutdownsFTR said the dry van segment was hit particularly hard, with refrigerated van orders somewhat less impacted in April. Vocational orders, which fell significantly in March, remained tepid in April.Numerous manufacturers shut down for part of April, including Wabash National for two weeks. It plans another furlough from June 29-July 3, according to its 10-Q filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission."Fleets remain in a severe wait-and-see posture until they can evaluate the damage done to the freight markets from the pandemic," Ake said. "Since the recovery from the economic crisis is highly dependent on the status of the health crisis, there is a huge amount of uncertainty in the trailer market."In its quarterly Trailer Components Report, ACT said the production pullback puts pressure on component and material supply chains to cope with orders being pulled ahead to support near-term production before line rates are reduced, resulting in layoffs.

Orders of new trailers plummeted 55% in March from the same month a year ago as an industry already struggling with tepid orders and excess inventory was hit by the coronavirus pandemic.Wabash National Corp. (NYSE: WNC) said it was suspending production at its plants for two weeks to cope with lower demand. FTR Transportation Intelligence reported that its preliminary count of trailer bookings in March was 6,500, 54% below an already depressed February count. Large orders canceledSome large fleets canceled dry van orders that were spread out over the remainder of the year, FTR said. A pullback in trailer orders was expected this year after more than 650,000 trailers were produced in 2018 and 2019. Trailer orders for the past 12 months total 177,000 units."It is expected there will be some over-capacity in the short-term due to the enormous number of new trailers that entered the market in the last three years," said Don Ake, FTR vice president of commercial vehicles."Some of those trailers will sit idle during this rough economic downturn," he said. "They will go back into service gradually as things recover. However, this will limit new trailer demand for a while."The trailer market is mirroring the Class 8 tractor business; orders totaled 7,400 units in March, off 52% from the same month a year ago.All segments sufferOrders were particularly weak for dry vans and tepid for flatbeds. Refrigerated van orders also fell but less than the other segments. "No doubt, March was a challenging month for the industry and was for Hyundai Translead as well," spokesman Sean Kenney told FreightWaves. "March began similar to other months this year but ended with a lot of the broader ambiguity being echoed by our customer base."FTR expects trailer orders to track around the 10,000-unit mark for a few months."This is a severe wait-and-see situation with a potentially long wait period," Ake said. Production suspensionWabash National, which designs and manufactures dry freight and refrigerated trailers, platform trailers, bulk tank trailers, and dry and refrigerated truck bodies, said its two-week company-wide furlough from April 20 to May 3 would idle all but customer support functions. Wabash had 6,900 employees as of December 31, 2019."We are taking the difficult, but necessary, decisions at all levels of the company to contain costs and preserve the strength of our balance sheet," said Wabash President and CEO Brent Yeagy.Hyundai Translead, among the largest of eight major trailer manufacturers, said it has avoided halting production so far."All Hyundai Translead facilities are running with appropriate safety measures in place," spokesman Kenney said. "Future plans will continue to be dictated by the broader market and employee safety precautions."Great Dane did not respond to a request for comment as to whether it has or is taking any downtime.See more from Benzinga * A Few Big Markets Bounce – FreightWaves NOW * Russian Air Transport Company Gets U.S. Rockets To Launch Site * TravelCenters Lays Off More Than 3,000 As Full-Service Restaurants Idled(C) 2020 Benzinga.com.

Volvo Trucks North America and Mack Trucks is suspending production at their U.S. assembly plants, the first heavy-duty truck manufacturers to idle workers because of the coronavirus pandemic. "Although we have no reason to believe we have any cases of COVID-19 at our Volvo Trucks or Volvo Group powertrain manufacturing facilities, we have decided to temporarily suspend production as part of the effort to slow the spread of the virus in our communities," Volvo Group spokeswoman Mary Beth Halprin told FreightWaves on Friday.Mack and Volvo make all their trucks for sale in the U.S., Canada and Mexico at their respective locations in Lehigh Valley, Pennsylvania and Dublin, Virginia. The two plants employ about 5,000 workers. A powertrain plant in Hagerstown, Maryland that feeds both assembly plants also will shut down from March 23-March 27.Mack began its shutdown on Thursday at the Lower Macungie Township plant, spokesman Christopher Heffner said."During this suspension, we will be exploring new ways of working and possible approaches to production that would allow for increased social distancing in the facility," Halprin said. "The health and safety of our employees and communities will be our primary concern as we work to make the most informed decisions we can during this uncertain time."Check back with FreightWaves as this is a developing story.Special divided droppedAB Volvo (OTC: VLVLY), the Swedish parent company of the Volvo Group siblings, said on March 19 it was pulling a recommendation for a $0.73 per-share special dividend it had proposed for the company's April 8 annual meeting."Many of the Group's operations are, or will be, temporarily closed and it is currently not possible to assess the duration," the parent company said in a statement. "In order to ensure that the Volvo Group can act from a position of strength in the current turbulent environment, the Board considers that it is prudent to maintain the proposal for the ordinary ($0.53 per-share) dividend, but withdraw the proposal for an extra dividend." Wabash tosses earnings estimateSeparately, trailer maker Wabash National (NYSE: WNC) said Friday it does not expect to meet its first quarter or full year 2020 guidance provided on February 12."Given the rapidly evolving situation, the company is currently unable to quantify the full impact of COVID-19 on its outlook and expects to provide additional information during its first quarter earnings call," Wabash said in a statement.Wabash National designs and manufactures dry freight and refrigerated trailers, platform trailers, bulk tank trailers, dry and refrigerated truck bodies, as well as structural composite panels, aerodynamic solutions for trailers and specialty food grade and pharmaceutical equipment.A company spokeswoman told FreightWaves it knows of no coronavirus cases in Wabash plants. She declined to answer whether line rates had been cut or any employees had been laid off."Customer pickups [of finished trailers] have been behind our initial expectations and we anticipate growing supply chain disruption in the coming weeks," said Brent Yeagy, Wabash president and CEO.See more from Benzinga * Today's Pickup: Amazon Warehouse Shuts Down After Worker Tests Positive * Truck Stop/Rest Stop Update: TA Says Diesel Volumes Are "Elevated" * XPO Ends Bid To Break Up The Company(C) 2020 Benzinga.com.
