ATA: Trucks move more than two-thirds of U.S. frei

ARLINGTON, Va.—Trucking continues to be the dominant mode of freight transportation in the U.S., carrying more than two-thirds of U.S. freight last year, according to ATA American Trucking Trends 2013, a report by American Trucking Associations.

U.S. trucks moved 9.4 billion tons of freight in 2012, or 68.5 percent of the nations annual freight total, the report said. Total gross

freight-related revenue for the industry was $642.1 billion, or 80.7 percent of the nations total, according to ATA. All these figures

represented an advance over 2011, it said.

Nationwide, the trucking industry employs 6.9 million people, ATA said.

"As the nation continues to travel the road to recovery following the Great Recession, it is becoming increasingly clear that trucking is

leading the way," said ATA Chief Economist Bob Costello.

American Trucking Trends 2013 is available from ATA Business Solutions and participating state trucking associations, ATA said.
