We maintain our positive outlook for healthy growth rates across the US freight sector over the short and medium term, with road set to be the outperformer in 2015. Key factors underlining our freight forecasts include the lower oil prices that will reduce fuel costs across the mix, while positive economic growth outlook will heighten consumer demand.

Continued gains in the labour market and high consumer confidence will see private consumption in the US pick up in the coming quarters, boosting headline growth. We forecast real GDP growth of 2.5% in 2015, increasing slightly to 2.6% in 2016. Moreover, growth will average around 2.5% over the next 10 years, a significant improvement from the 1.6% average seen over the past decade. Lower fuel costs will also be beneficial to household consumption. These factors will result in steady growth for all freight modes over the coming year.
