According to the Logistics Managers’ Index (LMI), transportation capacity saw a growth, registering at 63.3 in December, 1.5 percentage points higher than November. This increase, especially notable in the latter half of the month, was attributed to last-minute holiday-related shipments. Conversely, transportation prices continued to decline, falling to 43.1, down 1.1 points from November. Lower fuel prices were a key factor in this decline. The forward-looking expectations suggest a major shift in the industry, with transportation capacity predicted at 51 and prices at 70.3, indicating an end to the freight recession ongoing since April 2022​.
