Supply Chain Graphic of the Week: How has Truck Tonnage Risen over the Past Five Years?


ATA Tonnage Index Up Solid 20% Since 2015


Jan. 29,  2021

How have US trucking volumes grown since 2015?


Each month, the American Trucking Associations releases its Truck Tonnage Index, which tracks volumes hauled by US trucking companies.


It also publishes a chart of changes to the Index over time, the most recent of which we present below:

As can be seen, the index uses the average of tonnage in 2015 as its baseline, with an index value of 100.


At the end of 2020 - a year in which tonnage fell 3.3% - the index stood at 120, meaning a solid 20% growth over the five years since 2015. It also reached a peak in early 2020 before following an odd "W" shaped pattern since the start of the pandemic, though ending the year on a high note.
