Positive Forecasting for the Trucking Industry in 2023
Despite the U.S. freight economy having its ups and downs, the trucking industry is poised for a big comeback in 2023. The American Trucking Association’s (ATA) U.S. Freight Transportation Forecast to 2023 shows the U.S. freight economy is projected to grow significantly in the years ahead. The total freight tonnage is expected to grow by 21%, and revenue for the freight transportation industry is expected to rise 59% by next year.
In a recent article from Bulk Transporter, ATA’S Chief Economist Brian Costello stated, “Census Bureau and ATA data show single-family housing starts at a high level after years of underbuilding. And, combined with increased government spending spurred by the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, tank truck carriers should have plenty of construction-related freight to haul.”
In addition to this, factory output continues to grow, and we have a consumer base highly focused on internet shopping and “to door” delivery. These factors point to a bright outlook in the trucking and parcel delivery sectors.
