    Trends in Transportation

    - by Transplace

    While no two years are exactly alike, freight transportation in 2015 has been dramatically different than 2014. We aren’t seeing capacity shortages on a broad basis this year like we did in 2014, and while we expect capacity to modestly tighten once peak shipping season kicks in, we do not expect any significant capacity shortages this fall. Last year’s first quarter saw extreme weather issues, and though this year weather conditions weren’t quite as severe, we had to deal with the West Coast port challenges that also impacted domestic transportation. Overall, we had a much better start to 2015 due to more reasonable capacity demand balance.
