Employment follow-up: Big gain in jobs in latest report but ‘not enough’

Is adding 20,000 trucking jobs in just three months a lot of jobs or is it falling short given the current state of the freight market?

That is a question that was raised byAaron Terrazasof Convoy in analyzing the monthly employment numbers released Friday morning by the Bureau of Labor Statistics. It’s notable in light of the fact that the national average seven-day dry van rate published by Truckstop.com (and available in SONAR) has now solidly broken above the $3-per-mile mark and is starting to approach a doubling of where it was at its recent low of early May.
