Freight forecast remains ' bleak'

Order Reprints
Truck tonnage increased by 1.7% in November, but that doesn't mean the economy will rebound anytime soon, say officials from the American Trucking Associations (ATA).

The nation's freight forecast "remains bleak," they explain.

ATA Chief Economist Bob Costello says he expects freight to weaken even more "as the economy contracts through the first half of 2009."
