Long-Distance Freight Trucking in the US
Keep on trucking: During the recession, the Long-Distance Freight Trucking industry faced difficult conditions and falling demand. Declining consumer spending reduced the amount of freight needing transport, causing revenue to fall. Nevertheless, as the economy recovers, consumers will spend more and demand for long-distance freight will increase. Profit will also improve, due to higher demand for manufacturing and acquisitions of more fuel-efficient vehicles.
Long-distance freight-trucking operators handle various commodities, generally palletized and transported in containers or van trailers. Establishments usually provide trucking between metropolitan areas that cross the borders of North-American countries. The industry includes establishments operating as
truckload or less-than-truckload (LTL) carriers.
