Integrated Freight Corporation "Trucking Market Indicators"

Part 1 -- Key Industry Metrics Driving Growth and Profitability of $355 Billion Trucking Industry -- Relevant Information for Company Shareholders

SARASOTA, FL--(Marketwire - Oct 6, 2011) - Integrated Freight Corporation ("Integrated Freight" or the "Company") (OTCQB: IFCR) (OTCBB: IFCR) provides this commentary as Part 1 of its "Trucking Market Indicators" series.

On Tuesday, September 27, 2011, "Transport Topics" announced its monthly truck tonnage report. "Truck tonnage rose 5.2% in August from a year ago, the 21st straight month of year-over-year improvement, American Trucking Associations said Tuesday.

"The increase follows a revised 4.5% year-to-year gain in July that was bigger than the 3.9% originally reported." http://www.ttnews.com/articles/basetemplate.aspx?storyid=27689

In his September 9, 2011 editorial, John D. Schulz of "Logistics Management" stated that, "Trucking rates are rising and will continue to outstrip the pace of inflation as carrier capacity has tightened, experts and industry officials are predicting.

"One key indicator of tight capacity is the spot market. TransCore, which has analyzed spot vs. contract rates, has analyzed billions of dollars of rate agreements between brokers and carriers, has discovered a shift in freight buying habits that are a harbinger of the rate environment most shippers are facing.

"Usually, the spot market rates are about 15 percent lower than contract rates. But this year, according to TransCore's analysis, on a national average about 24 percent of lanes had spot market rates that were higher than contract rates during the second quarter."
