Miller and Gard Attend Illinois Trucking Association’s 2012 Annual Conference

Posted 1:43 PM by

Recently Jason Miller and Matt Gard, both of Katz, Sapper & Miller’s Transportation Services Group, attended the Illinois Trucking Association’s 2012 Annual Conference.

Highlights from the conference include:

  • Economic outlook for the transportation industry predicted to be flat for remainder of 2012;
  • Specialized carriers (flat bed, tank, etc.) outperforming  dry van sector;
  • Overall tonnage growing faster than total orders, mostly due to increase in hydraulic fracturing across the country;
  • Weak growth (~1%) in 2012 YTD mileage;
  • More smaller fleets are leasing rather than purchasing new equipment;
  • Drivers concerned CSA scores will impact job retention in near future;
  • The American Transportation Research Institute recently released their 2012 Analysis of the Operational Cost of Trucking report for 2012. Click here to request a copy.
