Trucking Company Fleet Failures Rise

A new Avondale Partners Report said trucking failures rose in the fourth quarter and will to continue to rise this year. The total number of failures reached 445 in the fourth quarter compared to 375 in the fourth quarter of 2008. Also the number of failures climbed compared to this year’s 3rd quarter number of 405.

These failures accounted for approximately 21,000 trucks being removed from service. This nearly doubled the approximate 10,000 trucks taken out of service in the 2008 quarter. “It is likely there will be an increase in fleet failures in the first quarter”, Stephen Russell, CEO of Celadon Group, stated.

The Avondale report said “eliminating these carriers not only reduces the amount of capacity but also eliminates the most irrationally priced participants.”
