ATA Truck Tonnage Index Plunged 12.2% in April
For April, American Trucking Association (ATA) reported massive declines in truck tonnage year-over-year. The retail industry was hit hard, while food saw increased demand. "The decline in tonnage is really no surprise. Once production of non-essential goods stopped, so did the shipments," said Mike Nervick CEO Sleek Fleet.
Not only is Sleek Fleet providing capacity to move essential goods across America, but customers are gathering NEW data and insights to make stronger, informed transportation decisions. "Our customers have real-time access to actual driver cost and 3PL markup on their lanes. Our data provides trends that historical rate data, and generic market rate data can't provide to help navigate market fluctuation", said Nervick.
