Motor carrier executives, although remaining cautious, are feeling much better about their prospects than they were at this point last year. We surveyed motor carrier executives across the country as part of our annual Transportation Buying Trends Survey and found 40% were expecting an increase in freight volumes for 2010. Only 19% expected the same last year. Just as important, only 10% were expecting freight volumes to drop further, compared to 42% who felt likewise last year. The survey also examined carrier projections for rates and capacity additions. In a separate survey, we polled shippers across the country about their expecations to use their road transport in 2010.
