Trucks still moving most freight from USA

The dollar value of freight hauled across the borders by U.S., Canadian and Mexican truckers in December was more than 9 percent greater than a year before. That is according to the U.S. Department of Commerce, which also says trucks moved 60 percent of all the international freight, with trains, planes, ships and pipelines picking up the rest.

Reduced value of mineral fuels led to a decrease in December 2014 U.S.-NAFTA trade flow, according to the TransBorder Freight Data released by the Bureau of Transportation Statistics. Freight totaled $95.8 billion, the second consecutive month of decreasing freight volumes when compared with the previous month.

Four of five modes experienced an increase in cargo value when compared with December 2013. Truck cargo had the highest growth at a rate of 9.3 percent. Rail freight increased 8.3 percent, air freight went up 6.3 percent and pipeline freight improved by 4.0 percent. Shipping freight experienced the only decrease from a year ago with a 22.6 percent reduction in value.
