For the second month in a row, the truck tonnage index calcuated by the American Trucking Association has declined.



The month of May saw a decline of 0.7 percent in the seasonally-adjusted tonnage index. The index fell even more in April, dropping 1.1 percent.



A representative for ATA stated that this slow decline is a disappointment, and indicates that the overall economy is declining as well. The truck tonnage index usually reflects the status of the American economy.
