Industry News
 
 
June’s Cass Truckload Linehaul Index continued the increasing rate of acceleration that began in 2017 by posting an 9.5% YoY increase to 134.7, the largest YoY percentage increase in this index to date (the base year is 2005). After signaling an industrial recession in the U.S. and being negative for 13 months in a row (from March 2016 through March 2017), the Cass Truckload Linehaul Index has not only been positive now for 15 consecutive months, but the strength is continuing to accelerate. "We are increasing our realized contract pricing forecast for 2018 from a range of 6% to 8% to a range of 6% to 12%, and current data is clearly signaling that the risk to our estimate may be to the upside," stated Donald Broughton, analyst and commentator for the Cass indexes. "We believe that this is the strongest normalized percentage level of truckload pricing achieved since deregulation (normalized meaning except for extreme periods of recovery from recession)."
