Trucking stocks have surged in 2013 as a steadily improving housing market has helped boost demand. The American Trucking Associations' advanced seasonally adjusted (SA) For-Hire Truck Tonnage Index spiked 2.3 percent in May to 126.0, which was the highest level on record and up 6.7 percent year-over-year. “The 6.8% surge in new housing starts during May obviously pushed tonnage up as home construction generates a significant amount of truck tonnage.” said ATA chief economist Bob Costello. "While we heard good reports regarding freight levels during May, I have to admit I am a little surprised at the large gain in tonnage," added Costello.
