American freight brokers have seen their share of the boom in freight volumes from the Great Lakes to the Gulf Coast, with the Midwest and Northeast both seeing a rise in freight activity.
The boom has also seen a surge in cargo containers being loaded and unloaded in the region, with volumes up 5.4 percent over last year, according to the American Trucking Associations.
A surge in container shipping is the latest example of how the trade has reshaped the transportation industry and brought jobs to America.
While the growth in cargo volume has come largely from smaller container ships, there is also a surge of smaller container ship containers moving across the country.
The trend has been spurred by the rise of automated loading and unloading, which is used to avoid a lot of labor costs in shipping containers and make them easier to transport.
“We are seeing a lot more freight coming through the port of Milwaukee, we are seeing more cargo moving through the Port of Detroit, and it is really making this place a great place to do business,” said John Houlihan, president of the American Freight Association.
Houlihann said the uptick in container shipments in the Midwest is the result of a trend that has been well-documented.
The U.S. has long been a major source of foreign container shipping and now it is moving to be more of a major global exporter of goods.
“We are in a much better position to be a global exportership,” he said.
Hulihan said he thinks the increased cargo volume from the Midwest has been good for the overall freight market.
The growth in freight volume is the direct result of the increased volume of freight coming into the United States from China, Mexico and elsewhere, he said, which means more trucks can be moved to ports.
Hulk truck company is a key player in the container boomAmerican freight brokers are finding that the boom has created an influx of foreign cargo containers.
In fact, the number of foreign containers loaded at a freight broker in the last six months alone increased by over 20 percent.
“It is the second-largest source of revenue for our business, so we have seen a very good number of containers coming into our business,” Houlichan said.
“I think it has been a tremendous increase in volumes and it has really opened the floodgates of shipping in the country,” he added.
Hauler and cargo container service provider, K-Cargo, recently announced it would be expanding its operations in the U.K., which is also looking to become a major exporter for cargo containers from Europe and Asia.
The company said that it was bringing more containers to the U and U.A. ports from its warehouses.
Hakim, the owner of Hauler, said that he and his colleagues in the shipping business are happy with the increase in cargo volumes.
“The trend is going in the right direction,” he told the AP.
“I think there is a lot going on in the world, and I think that the cargo industry is going to continue to boom.”
