THE WALL STREET JOURNAL: “Trucking Volumes Recover In August”

Trucks moved more freight in August, a pair of indexes showed, though not all fleets took part in the rebound. The American Trucking Associations’ seasonally-adjusted truck tonnage index rose 5.7% in August from a month earlier to 141.8, just below a record set in February. The report follows DAT’s estimate last week of an 11% year-on-year increase in North American truck volumes in August.
