Long-Distance Freight Trucking in Texas
The Long-Distance Freight Trucking industry in Texas has undergone growth over the past five years due to favorable conditions following economic recovery. Over the five years to 2017, household disposable income rose, and with it consumer spending, industrial production and trade volume, all of which served to increase demand for industry transportation services.
