The author reflects on the transition of the truck trailer industry in the U.S. He notes that after the annual Truck Trailer Manufacturers Association (TTMA) convention in 2009, trailer manufacturers have experienced drops in order cancellation rates, as well as increases in new orders and production rates. He speculates that if the trends continue, the topic of the 2010 TTMA convention could be the shortage of components.
