Hilco Report Details Likely Recovery Timeframe, Valuation Levels for Transportation Fleet Assets

May 18, 2020

Hilco Global has issued a timely report regarding the recovery path for transportation industry fleet assets, and how trends the company is tracking throughout this period coupled with its own market intelligence from the past decade can provide valuable insight to fleet operators and lenders as the current pandemic-driven crisis dissipates in the second half of this year.

Underlying Economic Fundamentals Reveal Likely Recovery Path for Transportation Industry Fleet Assets, authored by Bryan Courcier, Sr. Vice President of Hilco’s Transportation & Construction Advisory practice, explores the historically consistent valuation of trucking industry assets over time - including through the period of the Great Recession - and what that may mean in the short term for auction markets and asset buyers with limited capital or shaken confidence in the current environment. 

“By some measures, the situation looks quite bleak,” says Courcier. “Yet, taking a step back to establish a baseline from which to view the current situation and reasonably forecast a likely recovery timeframe for the industry may provide some welcome perspective on what operators and lenders can expect to occur in the second half of the year and into early 2021.”
