Stronger Freight Demands Lifting U.S. Inventories 

US business inventories are rising amid signs freight is flowing more freely through supply chains, rather than piling up in high stacks of goods at warehouses. Total business sales increased 2 percent in December from November and 5.2 percent year-over-year, the US Census Bureau said Wednesday. Although business inventories rose .4 percent on a seasonally adjusted basis, the inventory-to-sales ratio dropped from 1.38 to 1.35, which is a sign that goods sold faster. US businesses saw the biggest monthly inrease in sales in six years in December, as consumers finished a weak 2016 on a strong note. The combined value of distributor and manufatcurer sales reached 1.365 trillion, compared with $1.288 trillion in December 2015.
