US truck tonnage dropped 5.8 percent in September, according to the American Trucking Associations' For-Hire Truck Tonnage Index. The sharp drop came on the heels of a 5 percent rise in August. Tonnage was down 0.7 percent compared to September 2015, marking the first year-over-year decline since last October. Year-to-date, tonnage is up 3 percent. "Volatility this year continued again in September with the large drop after a significant increase in August," said ATA chief economist Bob Costello.
