Trucking rates may be on the rise, according to the latest ACT For-Hire Trucking Index from ACT Research. ACT reported its pricing index bounced to its highest reading in the past 12 months at 52.7. A quarter of respondents reported a modest increase, with 57 percent seeing no change in their revenue per mile.
More fleets also indicated they plan to purchase more trucks. Forty-one percent said they’ll be planning purchases in the next three months, while 35 percent of respondents said they plan to buy trailers in that period. Almost all the purchases will be new and will be used to expand fleets, ACT reports.
