Avery Vise, FTR’s vice president of trucking, commented, “Better days are in sight for trucking companies, but the market still needs to work through the tough combination of too much capacity and sluggish freight demand. The May payroll jobs figures for trucking offered some encouragement that this transition is underway, but a healthier situation for carriers will require continued rightsizing of capacity and stronger volume. We still do not expect consistently favorable market conditions for carriers until early next year.”
