During 2018 more than 9,900 truck trailers and semi-trailers were sold nationwide. In the first half of the year of these 30 these sales corresponded to factory-scaled vehicles or configured with the necessary adaptability to be scaled. ( truck trains )

The second semester this percentage grew to a 70 and currently reached 90. This reflects a profound change in the way transport production is built now in the country.

The price of trailers and semi-trailers now climbs to between $860,000 and $1.1 million each, depending on the number of axes and the model.

Between April of last year and January 2019 there were 820 used vehicles typified within The categories of scaled vehicles according to the data obtained of technical Revisions (RTO).
