July 21, 2022

The chart offers a mixed picture on conditions in the US.


US shipments in June, across a variety of modes but weighted toward truckload freight, were down year over year and versus May.


But freight expenditures were still stong, up 25% versus 2021, indicating rates were up.


And indeed, the Cass Linehaul Index, which measures US contract truckload rates before fuel surcharge and accessorials, was up 11.6% year-over-year, though down a bit versus May.


So slowing freight demand has slowed it appears the growth in rates but not sent them lower.
