FTR’s Trucking Conditions Index for August Reflected a Very Strong Month for Carriers

FTR’s Trucking Conditions Index for August jumped to a positive reading of 8.31, reflecting the very favorable rate environment for trucking during the month. Except for June of this year, the August reading was the highest for the index since March 2018. FTR expects the TCI to fall slightly in September and continue into single digit positive readings in Q4 and into 2021.
Details of the August TCI are found in the October issue of FTR’s Trucking Update, published September 30. Additional commentary focuses on the contrasts between the total freight market and the current strong market. Beyond the TCI and the commentary, Trucking Update includes data and analysis on load volumes, the capacity environment, and rates. FTR also publishes ongoing publicly available analysis on the impact of COVID-19 on freight transportation at FTR’s COVID-19 intelligence.
