April marked the fourth month in a row that shipments and expenditures saw gains, with the report’s author, Broughton Capital Founder and Managing Partner Donald Broughton commenting that these gains are in tandem with multiple data points “suggesting that the economy continues to get slightly better,” adding “[s]ome data points are simply less bad, but an increasing number of them are better and even a few are becoming outright strong.”

While I may have been on vacation this past week, that in no way means the rest of the industry was, not in the very least to be sure.

Freight shipments and expenditures both showed significant signs of improvement for the second straight month, according to the most recent edition of the Cass Freight Index Report from Cass Information Systems.

For January, the most recent month for which data is available, shipments were up 3.2 percent annually at 1.005 and down 6.4 percent compared to December. This follows a 3.5 percent annual gain in December, a 0.3 November decline, and a 2.7 percent gain in October, which marked the first time it headed up in the previous 20 months.

While shipments were down, the report noted that it does not create a major cause for concern, with some degree of normal seasonality at work, coupled with Donald Broughton, the report’s author and transportation analyst at Avondale Partners, noting that on an industry and anecdotal basis market sentiment indicates there are daily reports of stronger shipment volume in almost all modes of freight transportation.
