February Tonnage Takes Winter Weather Hit

Severe winter weather took a toll on truck tonnage in February, according to American Trucking Associations.

The ATA For-Hire Truck Tonnage Index for the month declined a seasonally adjusted 5.9% to 110 compared with 119.1 a year ago, and fell 4.5% compared with January. That month, the index measured 115.2.

For purposes of the index, the year 2015 = 100.

ATA Chief Economist Bob Costello said the February declines are more an indication of the troubles trucking companies faced during winter storms that hit the country last month than they are a sign of weak economic conditions. “February’s drop was exacerbated — perhaps completely caused — by the severe winter weather that impacted much of the country during the month,” Costello said. “Many other economic indicators were also soft in February due to the bad storms, but I continue to expect a nice climb up for the economy and truck freight as economic stimulus checks are spent, and more people are vaccinated.”

Carriers Use Pre-Planning to Help Drivers Secure Truck Parking

The basic task of finding a safe and available place to park has become a top challenge for commercial truck drivers, but so far there has been no single solution to this persistent problem.

Trucking companies are addressing the parking shortage in multiple ways, including advance planning, using technology to access real-time information on parking availability, or even embracing paid reservations for parking spaces or hotel rooms to make it easier for drivers to shut down for the night.

“With parking being as big a factor as it is, a successful driver can no longer simply leave out on a trip and decide last-minute they are going to just pull in and park at a given location,” said Shawn Brown, vice president of safety for Cargo Transporters. “Careful planning needs to occur along with taking into account factors such as time of day, weather, traffic delays, etc., that all in some way affect how a trip will play out, and therefore how satisfied a driver is.”
