Commercial trailer orders were up 59% last month vs. May 2009 levels, according to ACT Research, a firm that tracks trucking industry trends.

Order backlogs rose an additional 10% in May 2010, as well, the fifth consecutive month that trailer order backlogs have increased.

"All signs are indicating that freight growth is rapidly absorbing excess truck capacity," says Kenny Veith, ACT senior analyst.
