Harvey’s Impact On U.S. trucking

Hurricane Harvey to Disrupt Nearly 10% of U.S. Trucking 2017-08-30

Hurricane Harvey has and will impact the trucking industry in the U.S. in a big way, FTR Transportation Intelligence (FTR) reported today.
 
FTR has quantified preliminary numbers, gauging the impact in the overall trucking market. Hurricane Harvey's broad swath across Texas will strongly affect over 7% of U.S. trucking, with some portion of that fraction out of operation for two weeks.
 
During the first week, almost 10% of all U.S. trucking will be affected. That number jumps near 100% for the Gulf Coast region west of the Mississippi. After a month, the numbers fall but are still significant -- impacting nearly 2% (national) and 25% (regional). Due to the already tight nature of the truck environment, this means that loads could be left on the docks. The largest effects will be regionalized, but transportation managers across the entire U.S. will be scrambling.
