Avery Vise explains active truck utilization and gives an update on where things currently stand.

This Q&A response from The FTR Experts came from our October State of Freight webinar. View the video and the key takeaways below.

Key Takeaways:
  • Active truck utilization measures the degree to which trucks that have drivers are filled with freight. It's a function of driver demand, driver supply and the productivity of trucks and drivers.
  • Aside from brief volatility during the winter, utilization has been maxed out all year with only incremental relief through 2022.
