Todd Tranausky discusses the state of economically sensitive freight now and going forward.

This Q&A response from The FTR Experts came from our December State of Freight - 2021 Lessons & Market Risks webinar. View the video and the key takeaways below.

Key Takeaways:
  • Economically sensitive freight such as metals, lumber, and wood are not moving, similar to the stagnation seen in carload.
  • Action after the Thanksgiving holiday still barely put ESF in line with the 5-year average, but there's no lasting momentum.
