Logistics On Wheels Still a Viable Option

January of 2015 reportedly saw an increase in trucking activity.

Three different modes of transportation — air, truck and train — all saw gains, with the last one leading at a growth of near 5 percent. That means the amount of goods shipped by rail during this month increased by the highest dollar amount out of these channels. 

Overall, trucks accounted for the highest amount of freight for the U.S.-NAFTA, however. They reportedly accounted for more than 62 percent of freight in this category and 55 percent of the freight traveling in and out of Canada. For trade with Mexico, trucks were even more dominant, as they contributed to almost 71 percent of operations for that sector.

The source also listed the top commodities for delivery by truck to America's neighbors north and south for January. Between the States and Mexico, this consisted of "electrical machinery; equipment and parts," a category that consisted of 7,023 total units, with imports surpassing exports. This was also the top commodity for air transport and all modes total. For Canadian trade, the chief commodity was "vehicles other than railway," which saw far more even rates of importing and exporting.

Drawing from this information, businesses should recognize the increased importance of and dependence on trucking services within the shipping sector. To address their own shipping needs in due time, companies with major supply lines should choose a leading supply chain provider with expertise in accommodating the needs of various enterprises.
