U.S. truck tonnage in March saw the biggest increase since January 2005, American Trucking Associations reported. Tonnage jumped 7.5 percent from a year ago. The numbers declined a little from January to February, but the index rose 0.4 percent in March.
American Trucking Associations seasonally adjusted the index, and economists predict the recovery of the motor carrier industry. Economists report that both supply and demand are improving.
