    Truck tonnage rose 3.6% in January from the same month last year, American Trucking Associations said.

    January tonnage fell 4% from December, ATA said in its monthly seasonally adjusted for-hire truck tonnage report released Tuesday.

    Tonnage rose 5.8% for last year, ATA said, slightly revising downward its previous 5.9% figure. The 2011 gain matched 2010’s increase.

    The seasonally adjusted index for January was a reading of 119.4, down from December’s record level of 124.4.

    The not seasonally adjusted index, which represents actual tonnage, was 112.1 in January. ATA uses the year 2000 as a 100-reading baseline.

    ATA Chief Economist Bob Costello, who previously said he was surprised by December’s big gain, said he was “not surprised that tonnage fell on a seasonally adjusted basis in January simply due to the fact that December was so strong.”
