BTS Releases December 2014 Freight Transportation Services Index (TSI)

The Freight Transportation Services Index (TSI), which is based on the amount of freight carried by the for-hire transportation industry, was virtually unchanged in December from November, failing to rise after five consecutive months of increases, according to the US Department of Transportation’s Bureau of Transportation Statistics’ (BTS). The December 2014 index level (123.8) was 30.9% above the April 2009 low during the most recent recession.
The level of freight shipments in December measured by the Freight TSI (123.8) was less than one-tenth of 1% below the all-time high level of 123.9 in November 2014. BTS’ TSI records begin in 2000.

The November index was revised to 123.9 from 123.2 in last month’s release but still remains an all-time high. July, September and October indexes were also revised up while the August index was revised down.
