"Wow, what an election, but overnight, we became incredibly bullish about the trucking industry in America," said Louis Normand, CEO of www.AmericanTruckGroup.com. "If only one-tenth of President-Elect Donald Trump's plans reach fruition, it will be the biggest boom for the American trucking industry in a generation."
"Even J.B. Hunt transportation is jumping on the President Trump Train," said Normand. "Talk about waiting until after Election Day - J.B. Hunt Transport Services Inc. said Nov. 9 that it planned to add 500 to 700 trucks to its dedicated contract solutions unit and 100 to 120 in its truckload division in 2017. Also, it will replace 1,100 trucks."
The movement of freight was already predicted to increase before the presidential election, yet only modestly, Normand states, as the American Trucking Association's U.S. Freight Transportation Forecast to 2027 showed growth in both overall freight volumes and in the amount of goods moved by truck. Between 2016 and 2027, overall freight tonnage will grow a total of 35%, and over that same timeframe, the amount of freight moved by trucks will grow more than 26%.
According to Normand, construction & living essentials will be boosted even more across America because President-Elect Donald Trump gave us his promise. Truck sales have been way down industrywide as economic slow down over the past 10 months and uncertainty led to some truckers just barely holding on.
"Sales of new and used trucks have been anemic during the past year," said Normand. "We have been busy updating our fleet with high quality and new current technology in our vehicles as we meet a key need, but we are enthusiastic about the Donald Trump presidency: A rising tide lifts all boats."
www.AmericanTruckGroup.com and www.NationalTruckFunding.com will be doubling their fleet next, adding approximately 800 heavy duty semi Peterbilt, Kenworth trucks to its fleet in the next 24 months.
"The Trump administration will be a game-changer," said Normand. "We are excited to be having 1600 truckers on the road." ATG Is Helping Truckers.
