Our Annual Freight Insights Report.

The 2020 Annual Freight Insights Report signifies the first time we’re making data from our digital freight network publicly available with this level of detail and analysis. We assembled this report with help from our industry-leading data science team. We reviewed our proprietary network data along with broader economic data to assemble this white paper. The report captures a unique picture of North American freight in 2020.
