Recently quarterly earnings have been somewhat mixed but most show growth and increased revenues compared to last year. The higher revenues are attributed mostly to a lower supply of trucking capacity, moderate rising demand and inventory restocking in businesses. On the other hand, the industry is suffering from higher transportation and fuel costs.

For this quarter, CH Robinson Worldwide Inc., the largest logistics provider domestically, delivered earnings of $97.2 million on a revenue increase of 27% to $2.45 billion. Trucking company Werner Enterprises Inc. also saw a rise in revenue of 15% to $463.5 million, thus providing a 65% surge in profit.

The freight market is improving of late but many carriers' fleets are ageing as the cost of new trucks increases and equipment financing remains hard to come by. As companies look to update their fleets they will be thinking about lowering gas emissions, as pressure is increasing around this issue. A recent proposal is to use high strength, low weight aluminum in trucks and trailers. This promises to reduce weight, save fuel and reduce emissions.
