Take a load off: A recovery in consumer spending and manufacturing will lift revenue
Local Freight Trucking in the US
On the road again: During the recession, sluggish manufacturing production and slow retail spending reduced demand for freight transportation. However, industry conditions will improve as the economy stabilizes and demand for freight services increases. Furthermore, recovering consumer confidence and increased spending will support growth in freight volumes, boosting industry demand. However, the industry will face rising competition from other modes of transportation, such as rail, air and ocean.
Operators in this industry provide general freight trucking over short distances. General freight companies handle a variety of commodities, which are generally palletized and transported in a container or van trailer. Local general freight trucking
companies usually provide trucking within a metropolitan area that may cross state lines, and the trips are generally same-day return.
