What is it about American freight that’s so profitable?
It’s a tough one.
The American freight industry has been struggling for years to make the transition from one of the fastest growing sectors in the US economy to one that has struggled to find much growth.
For decades, the freight industry was a relatively inexpensive way for the US to ship its goods to overseas markets and to the world.
That’s changed as the US has become increasingly reliant on trade with countries like China and Mexico.
But as the industry’s share of the US market has been steadily shrinking over the past decade, American freight is facing a crisis of supply.
US freight has been a mainstay of the economy for decades, but its share of total US GDP has been falling for years, and it’s not just because of the decline in the value of the dollar.
US shipments of manufactured goods like cars, aircraft, and steel have been declining for years and have become more expensive as a result.
The US has had to import goods to compete with foreign rivals like China, and now it’s going to have to compete against cheaper imports from overseas as well.
But there’s another reason for the drop in US freight: a shortage of shipping containers.
US cargo is growing more than four times faster than the rest of the world, and is projected to grow by about 7 percent annually through 2030, according to the US Commerce Department.
That growth, combined with the rise of Chinese imports, is forcing the US into an economic crisis.
It’s the worst situation for American businesses since the Great Depression.
There are only about 100 million commercial containers left on the docks in the United States.
According to the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, only about 20 percent of these containers can be moved at a time, and only half of those can be filled.
As a result, the US is running out of container space.
And the problem is getting worse, says Michael Sivak, a professor at the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania.
US container shipping declined from an average of about 6,000 containers a day in the 1980s to about 3,000 per day today, according the Wall Street Journal.
US trucking also declined, from more than 10,000 trucks a day to about 8,000.
Sivay says the US now faces the worst freight shortages in the world and that the problem isn’t just a result of declining supply.
The situation is so dire that the US Department of Transportation has asked the Department of Commerce to step in and create a task force to develop a plan to address the problem.
But it’s unlikely that the task force will be able to make any significant impact in addressing the issue, according a source familiar with the situation.
US President Donald Trump is expected to announce a new plan to ease the pressure on the US freight industry during his first state visit to China next month.
US Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross, a leading Trump critic, is expected in Beijing to sign off on the plan, and he’s also expected to meet with Chinese President Xi Jinping to discuss the crisis.
But for now, US freight shipments have fallen even further.
The average number of containers that the United Kingdom exports each year has fallen from about 10 million to 5 million.
The United States imports a lot more freight than the UK.
For the past two decades, US exports have been steadily growing, while imports have slowed.
That was the case even before the Great Recession, when US exports were growing more rapidly than imports.
But that was before the massive decline in US shipping containers since the mid-2000s.
But now that the Great Tide has receded, US cargo shipments are falling, too.
For many years, the United Sates trade deficit with China was much higher than it is today.
China, for its part, is a big buyer of US goods, and that trade deficit has also shrunk dramatically.
But the trade gap has grown substantially since 2009.
US trade with China is now about $8.4 billion, which is the equivalent of roughly 2 percent of global trade.
The trade deficit in 2015 was $1.7 trillion.
But because of China’s slowdown, US shipments are growing faster than they were before the downturn.
For instance, shipments to the EU and China fell in the first quarter of 2017 compared to the first three months of 2017, but shipments to Mexico and Canada increased.
The problem for American freight shipping companies isn’t so much the collapse of US shipments as the increase in demand from overseas markets.
The biggest obstacle to the recovery of US freight shipping in the last few years is the global economic slowdown, which has led to a drop in global trade and a sharp decline in global demand.
That has caused a massive decline for US freight companies.
In the early 1990s, there were about 20,000 American freight companies and they employed about 11,000 people.
By 2015, that number had dwindled to about 4,500 and by 2020, to less than 1,000, according data
