North America Market Update
The truckload market presents a mixed and volatile picture, with varying conditions across many regions and lanes. The divide in the marketplace between “essential” and “non-essential” goods continues to play out. Month-end/quarter-end took a lot of freight off the docks which has not been replenished. Industry data suggests that manufacturing has met demand in some sectors of the economy.
