ATA September truck tonnage stays in familiar range

The ATA’s advanced seasonally-adjusted (SA) For-Hire Truck Tonnage Index for September, at 117.6 (2015=100), headed up 0.2% on the heels of a 4% (upwardly revised from 3.2%) August decline, which came in at 117.3. The ATA’s not seasonally-adjusted (NSA) index, which represents the change in tonnage actually hauled by fleets before any seasonal adjustment and the metric ATA says fleets should benchmark their levels with, came in at 114.8 (2015=100), which was off 7.5% compared to August’s 124.
