ATA American Trucking Trends 2017
The American trucking industry
posted gains in employment, number of truck drivers and truck sales through
2016, according to the ATA American Trucking Trends 2017. Trends is produced by
ATA's Economics Department to provide a profile of the dynamics shaping the
trucking industry. The only almanac on U.S. trucking, it also serves as a
vital source of information on major trucking and transportation issues.
“According to our data,
trucking revenues were $676.2 billion in 2016 (the all-time record of
$719.3 billion was in 2015), while trucks moved more than 10.4
billion tons of freight,” said ATA Chief Economist Bob Costello. “While the
first half of 2016 has been challenging for the industry, trucking is coming
off two very strong years and we are optimistic about the future.”
A sampling of data Trends includes:
Truck freight tonnage
Number of Class 8 trucks in operation
Taxes paid by the trucking industry
Employment data, including number of people working in trucking related
jobs throughout all industries, number of drivers, and how many women are truck
Number of miles traveled by trucks and the amount of fuel consumed
“In many ways, 2016 was a good
year for our industry, and Trends clearly
demonstrates that,” said ATA President and CEO Chris Spear. “Trends provides indispensable
information to trucking companies, industry suppliers, logistics providers,
analysts, public policy decision makers, investors and many others. Information
that is crucial to making sound decisions about the future.”
