Average Daily Long-Haul Truck Traffic on the National Highway System: 2012


Long-haul freight trucks typically serve locations at least 50 miles apart, excluding trucks that are used in movements by multiple modes and mail.


Long-haul freight truck traffic in the United States is concentrated on major routes connecting population centers, ports, border crossings, and other major hubs of activity.  Except for Route 99 in California and a few toll roads and border connections, most of the heaviest traveled routes are on the Interstate System.
