|By:, SA News Editor

Airline stocks weren't the only ones hit by Tuesday's snow.

The trucking industry will be hurt the most, Avondale Partners' Don Broughton told CNBC, stating trucks have the "lowest asset utilization" in unfortunate weather scenarios like a blizzard.

What about the rest of the sector? The rail industry won't be impacted quite as severely but it will be to an extent, he said, followed by air freight carriers.
