The American Trucking Associations (ATA) projects a 28.6% freight volume increase through 2026 for all modes of transportation. Trucking will continue to be the dominant mode of freight transportation. Pipelines are projected to benefit more than other modes due to the growth in energy production in the U.S.
The 2nd fastest growing mode will be intermodal freight, while railroad freight tonnage is expected to be lower during these years.
The outlook for all modes of freight transportation remains bright…
… according to Bob Costello, ATA Chief Economist. The main factors contributing to this projected increase for trucking, intermodal, rail and pipeline shipments are continued population growth, expansion of the energy sector and foreign trade. These forecasts are important for shippers, executives, lawmakers and regulators as they prepare new policies and operations for future industry and economy.
