Trucking will boost its share of the United States' freight pool into the next decade, according to a recently published report by the American Trucking Associations (ATA).

The report, U.S. Freight Transportation Forecast to... 2018, predicts that trucking's total tonnage share will rise to 69.7% by 2012 and up to 70% by 2018.

"Above-average growth in key truck commodities and the inherent flexibility and on-time delivery associated with trucking is driving industry growth," say ATA officials.
