According to TransCore LinkLogistics’ Canadian Freight Index, November showed an 11% decline in volumes versus October 2014. That result, however, was offset by the finding that in a year-to-year comparison, November 2014 volumes were 19% higher than those measured in November 2013.
Cross-border traffic accounted for 70% of the loads tracked by TransCore. While there was more freight moving across the Canada-US border, there were fewer trucks transporting the goods. Outbound cross-border loads grew 52% year-over-year while inbound cross-border loads also increased 12%, but there were decreases of 21% and 2% respectively for outbound and inbound cross-border trucks.
