    Truck tonnage rose 6% in November

    Truck tonnage rose 6% in November from a year ago, the biggest increase since June, American Trucking Associations said Wednesday.

    The increase rounds out two years of consecutive year-over-year growth, and followed a 5.7% increase in October. In June, tonnage rose 6.5% year-over-year.

    On a monthly basis, November tonnage was 0.3% higher than October, ATA said in its monthly seasonally adjusted for-hire truck tonnage report.

    That followed a revised 0.4% month-to-month gain that had originally been reported as a 0.5% increase.

    The seasonally adjusted index for November came in at a reading of 116.6, up from 116.3 in October.

    The not seasonally adjusted index, which measures actual tonnage, slipped 2.6% to a 115.3 reading.
