Domestic freight demand is on the rise this spring, according to the American Trucking Association (ATA). The ATA’s seasonally adjusted truck tonnage rate rose 3.6% from April to May, marking the first increase in that index since February 2023.

The year over year adjusted rate also increased by 1.5%, the time that’s happened in more than a year. While these are encouraging signs, that doesn’t necessarily mean we’re seeing a full recovery.

“It is still too early to say whether this is the start of a long-awaited recovery in the truck freight market,” said ATA Chief Economist Bob Costello.
