Calling it the “singularly most important guide to trucking facts and figures,” the 2012 edition of ATA American Trucking Trends by American Trucking Assns., is an indispensable tool for trucking companies, industry suppliers, logistics providers, analysts and public policy decision makers, according to Bill Graves, ATA president & CEO.

The almanac of U.S. trucking produced by ATA’s Economics Department, Trucking Trends provides a profile of the dynamics shaping the trucking industry and serves as a vital source of information on major trucking and transportation issues.

Data in the publication shows that trucking continues to be the dominant mode of freight transportation and an integral part of the U.S. economy.
