Transportation, logistics job bounceback continues

Firms added another 15,400 jobs in June.

   Hiring growth at U.S. transportation and logistics companies continued in June after slowing significantly in April.
   Firms added another 15,400 jobs for the month following revised increases 17,600 and 2,400 positions in May and April, according to the latest preliminary data from the U.S. Department of Labor’s Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS).
   The April slowdown followed three consecutive months of strong gains. U.S. logistics companies added 15,700 jobs in March, 17,800 positions in February and 15,300 jobs in January.
   Employment gains in the sector during June were led by the transit and ground passenger and courier and messengers segments, which added 4,300 and 4,100 jobs, respectively, compared with the previous month.
   Other segments that saw increases in employment included support activities for transportation, up 3,000 jobs; truck transportation, up 2,500 positions; air, up 1,500 jobs; warehousing and storage, up 800 positions; and water and pipeline, up 300 jobs each.
   Only two of the 10 sectors tracked by BLS in the transportation and warehousing category showed declines in employment for the month. Rail transportation firms shed 800 jobs, while the scenic and sightseeing transportation segment was down 600 positions from May.
   Total U.S. non-farm payroll employment increased by 213,000 in June compared with the previous month, and the unemployment rate edged up 0.2 percentage points to 4 percent, according to BLS.
