Freight Volume in 2017 Hits Highest Level in Four Years

Signals of a strong U.S. economy are showing up in freight demand. Last year, freight volume increased 3.7 percent, the largest annual gain since 2013, when the index was up 6.1 percent. These freight figures are a positive sign for 2018, especially combined with other factors such as increased U.S. manufacturing and solid retail sales, according to the American Trucking Associations’ For-Hire Truck Tonnage Index.
