PORTLAND, Oregon , December 20, 2011 (press release) – TransCore’s Canadian Freight Index that tracks the spot market, remained steady in November with no change from October 2011 levels. However, year-over-year load volumes increased a healthy 17 percent.

TransCore began recording data in 2001 when TransCore acquired Link Logistics.

Equipment postings in November were up 5 percent from October, however the lowest levels for any November since 2005. Capacity was 8 percent below recorded levels for November 2010.

There was no change in the equipment-to-loads from volumes reached in October.
