April Sees 4% Rise in Truck Tonnage

Posted by Genie Wood on Fri, May 24, 2013 @ 03:58 PM

Truck tonnage is up 4.3% nationally from the same time period last year, reflecting the ongoing strengthening of the U.S. economy. According to the American Trucking Associations (ATA), the April index was 123.2, a decrease of .2% since March but a reminder, nevertheless, that the overall state of the industry is relatively healthy. 

According to economists with the ATA, the relative health of the industry is broadly in line with the current trajectory of the overall economy. Furthermore, according to some, signs for May’s numbers are widely being viewed as positive at the moment.
