Business Driving Activity Rebounds to 70% of Pre-Pandemic Levels

| April 9, 2021

Motus released its latest Flash Report, which shows the evolution of U.S. business driving activity over last year by region and by industry sector

The numbers reveal how various geographies and groups have fared, and in some cases thrived, during this tumultuous time, as well as how local restrictions and policies impacted grey fleets.  

  • Average business mileage across the U.S. has increased to 70% of pre-pandemic levels. Regionally, the Western and Southern U.S. are trending at about 72% of pre-pandemic levels, business mileage in the Midwest has grown to 70% of pre-pandemic levels and Northeast mileage activity has grown to 64% of pre-pandemic levels.
  • While activity levels vary from region to region, there is an even wider variety among industry sectors and their many subsectors. After seeing similar trajectories across most industries in March and April of 2020, different businesses are recovering at different speeds. Activity trends also differ depending on where and how companies operate, for instance:
  • Business Services (102%, +27% above the WorkForward average)
  • Food & Beverage (86% of pre-pandemic levels, a +46% increase over the week of 4/5)
