Sales of commercial trucks, while small in volume, jumped in January according to data from the Greater Cleveland Automobile Dealers Association.
According to a report published by the Cleveland Plain-Dealer, sales soared 36 percent on the purchase of 198 heavy-duty trucks during the month. The newspaper cautioned, however, with such small numbers, a single large order could skew actual sales activity.
Heavy truck sales were up 40 percent locally last year, and sales have been strong nationwide as well, the newspaper reported.
