The American Trucking Association (ATA) has released its seasonally-adjusted For-Hire Truck Tonnage numbers, and its Index rose more than half a percent in the month of February, the fourth consecutive month which has seen an increase. This bodes well for the continuing health of the industry on the whole, and marks the best four-month stretch since late in 2011.
According to the ATA’s chief economist, this increase in truck tonnage has been more and earlier than expected, and suggests that the impact of economic headwinds anticipated by some analysts will not be nearly as damaging as expected.
