On The Road Again

America’s transportation companies are moving again – literally. The Freight Transportation Services Index is now nearly 20.5% above its April 2009 recession low, and the level of freight shipments in July 2013 measured by the Freight TSI was the second highest all-time level. The surge was driven by increases in rail intermodal and inland water shipments, with small increases in trucking and rail carloads.[1] The increased supply has also lowered energy prices, fueling margin expansion for transport firms. In addition, continued consolidation among airline operators – to the point where just three airlines will carry more than half the country’s market share this year -- has resulted in cost savings and greater pricing power.[2] This motif comprises stocks of railroad, trucking, airlines and services companies that have an opportunity for higher revenue and margin expansion from a continued US economic recovery and energy boom.
