We are now providing residual value consulting to clients, and as a by-product of this capability, we will provide general updates on our long-term forecasts to the public. This data will be available in this blog and in our Guidelines monthly market update. Of course, actual projects for clients go into much deeper detail on wholesale and retail forecasting. What we provide to the public will be a broad look at general upcoming trends.

With that in mind, our first update shows a relaxation of retail depreciation into 2020, at which point trucks should regain some of the value they lost from 2015-2019. Then, values should again head downwards as the returning supply of used trucks increases. See graph below for detail.

Please contact chris.visser@jdpa.com for further information about our residual value consulting capabilities.

Best wishes for the holiday season and the new year!
