It’s fair to say the transportation industry has faced a lot of challenges over the past few years. The COVID-19 pandemic had a profound impact on the pricing dynamics of both new and used semi-trailers, leading to significant fluctuations in the market. As businesses scrambled to recover from the disruptions caused by the pandemic, there was a sudden surge in demand for semi-trailers as they became essential for resuming operations and making up for lost time. This sudden spike in demand created a shortage of new assets, with delivery times stretching up to three years for UK hauliers. Consequently, prices for both new and used semi-trailers skyrocketed.

The cost of living crisis then hit and subsequently put an enormous strain on businesses, resulting in a significant decrease in driver and transportation demand. Many businesses were forced to reassess their financial situations and make difficult decisions. The post-pandemic boom led to inflated prices for used semi-trailers, which seemed like a good thing at the time. However, as the demand decreased, the market became flooded with used semi-trailers, causing asset values to depreciate significantly. This only added to the existing difficulties faced by businesses, resulting in another financial shift.
