The economy generates freight, and freight drives the demand for trucks and trailers.

Companies who understand this are rewarded with balanced books, smooth production schedules, and just the right amount of inventory on hand. Those who don't get it live in reactionary chaos, leading to stressed employees, unnecessary inventory carried from month to month, and leaving money on the table.

The FTR Truck & Trailer Outlook service is the definitive guide to forecasting truck equipment demand.

Only FTR's Freight•cast™ forecast bases demand on fundamental economic and freight dynamics so you can prepare your production schedules with precision.
