American freight hours hit new all-time high on Monday
The U.S. freight hour record has now reached 1:15 p.m.
ET, according to the U.N.’s International Maritime Organization.
That’s the time it takes a passenger ship to cross the Pacific Ocean from the United States to another country.
At the same time, U.K. rail travel has hit a new all time high of 1:29 p.mi., according to U.KSRail.com.
The latest data comes after President Donald Trump took to Twitter on Monday to celebrate his administration’s recent surge in cargo deliveries.
The Trump administration is making good on a campaign promise to cut off illegal immigration by “tough” and “effective” enforcement.
In a tweet on Monday morning, Trump said the United Kingdom has shipped over 1.5 million packages to American customers since Trump took office, according.
He also tweeted that it’s now a record for freight shipments in a day.
The record was set in 2008, and in a different tweet, Trump called the record a “major victory for American businesses.”
