ARLINGTON, Va., May 12, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, American Trucking Associations released the latest edition of American Trucking Trends, the annual almanac of trucking and freight transportation, which confirms the industry's role as the primary mover of freight in the United States.
"This report shows once again what a critical role trucking plays in the U.S. economy," said ATA President and CEO Bill Graves. "Trucking continues to move the most, and most valuable, freight in the United States despite the challenges of congestion, regulations and crumbling infrastructure.
"It is fitting this report is being released at the start of Infrastructure Week," Graves added. "Our industry's growth in the face of continued road and bridge deterioration has been amazing, but it is time for our elected leaders to do their part to insure that the highways we use to move America's goods safely and efficiently are in good condition."
Among the findings in American Trucking Trends:
"Trends is an annual almanac, a snapshot, of what the trucking industry, and really what the freight economy, looks like," said ATA Chief Economist Bob Costello. "These numbers tell us what is happening in trucking and that's important for industry leaders, suppliers and policymakers."
