Reality is Better Than the Index Shows| December’s Truck Tonnage Index Spells ‘Best Year Since 1998′

What this index doesn’t capture is what happens when you have a high volume of loads that that are relatively light. Like what we had in December with all the online sales.

I’m not complaining or feel that this is not a good index to watch and understand. I say this to point out that December was actually even better than this index can capture because we had so many good paying miles that registered very little on the index.

The Owner Operator that wants to operate and think like a business owner needs to stop and ask what is an index missing. Is what is missing good or bad for the industry and their business? In this case it would be good.

Food for thought.
