Trucking is a complex and unpredictable industry even when times are normal.
Over the past several weeks, shippers and carriers alike have pushed their limits to keep shelves stocked and the U.S. economy afloat. We’re proud of how the transportation industry has done its part amidst the stress and uncertainty of a pandemic.
But, after the pandemic subsides, what does the future hold for our country’s economy and trucking industry?
In order to understand the impact of COVID-19 on the freight industry, U.S. Xpress has been keeping tabs on forecasts and data from Wall Street firms, transportation analysts, and government authorities. Over the coming months, we’re going to share our analyses and observations into the future of freight.
We released our first COVID-19 Impact Forecast earlier this week. After sharing it with our customers and colleagues, we’d like to share it with you.
We’ll update and refine our view into the state of freight as we learn more about the public health and economic impact of the pandemic.
Trucking is a proud but humble industry – it’s full of heroes that are often taken for granted. No matter what the near-term future will bring, we should all be proud of the role our industry has played in sustaining our country amidst this crisis.
Now, let’s prepare for what lies ahead.
