1 The truck transportation sector (North American Industrial Classification System [NAICS] 484) includes industries providing over-the-road transportation of cargo using motor vehicles, such as trucks and tractor trailers. The sector is subdivided into general freight trucking and specialized freight trucking. This distinction reflects differences in equipment used, type of load carried, scheduling, terminal, and other networking services.
