| Monday, September 29, 2014

U.S.-NAFTA freight hit $101.1 billion in July, the fifth consecutive month exceeding $100 billion according to TransBorder Freight Data.

With a $7.9 billion increase from last year, truck freight contributed the most with $4.7 billion. All five major modes of transportation – air, vessel, pipeline, rail and trucks – had better numbers in July when compared to July 2013.

Trucks carry three-fifths of U.S.-NAFTA freight and are the most heavily used mode for moving goods to and from both U.S.-NAFTA partners. Trucks carried 59.2 percent of U.S.-NAFTA freight in July 2014, accounting for $29.3 billion of imports and $30.5 billion of exports.
