Industry Update: Freight ‘Peak Season’ 2020 vs. 2019
The peak season of freight (August – October) is officially underway.
With freight trends fluctuating abnormally this year due to the pandemic, we decided to pull some data to see how peak season is looking this year versus last year…
With just a little over two weeks into August we are already showing an over 5% increase in the number of load transactions this year compared to 2019 – indicating a promising start to peak season 2020.
Transflo sees over $84 billion in freight docs this year. To calculate the over 5 percent increase we pulled counted daily reports of load transactions from 2019/08/01 – 2019/08/15 AND 2020/07/30 – 2020/08/14.
*The dates were shifted by 1 day to account for same number of weekend days to ensure accuracy by comparing similar volumes.
We’d like know what type of freight volume you’ve personally been experiencing, and what you expect over the next couple months…And if there is anything Transflo can do to help you with any hurdles or challenges you’re facing, please let us know.
