FTR 'cautiously optimistic' about freight demand
Speaking to attendees at Heavy Duty Dialogue 2013 in Nashville, Tenn., Starks said that freight was steady throughout 2012 but picked up in November and December. “It looked like raw fundamental growth that can’t be explained just by Hurricane Sandy,” Starks said. “We’re starting to get cautiously optimistic about where things are going.”
Just about all key drivers of freight demand are positive, Starks told industry suppliers and others at the event, which is presented by the Heavy Duty Manufacturers Association. “We believe housing has turned the corner,” he said, citing increases in housing starts and sales of new and existing homes as well as a reduction in housing inventory. “The automotive market is doing very well,” Starks said, adding that “getting above 15 million [vehicles sold per year] at this point in the recovery is a very good sign.”At first glance, the nearly flat Gross Domestic Product growth might appear troubling, but it resulted from two factors: A draw-down in inventories and lower defense spending, Starks told HDD 2013 attendees. While lower inventories is a negative in GDP calculations, it’s exactly what trucking companies want to see because it spurs future freight activity.
