    Transportation Industry Update: Q1 2018 Quarterly Industry Report

    - by Transplace

    Three months into 2018, the transportation industry has already observed a number of rapid developments and heightened challenges faced by shippers and carriers alike. From a marketplace standpoint, it’s no secret that there is currently an abundance of demand and not an abundance of supply. Truckload and LTL contract rates are trending upward, and though the upward trend of spot market rates has leveled, they remain up as much as 30% year-over-year on a per mile basis, having a deleterious impact on shippers’ budgets. As we head into produce season in Q2, we expect the supply/demand imbalance to remain.

For carriers, with the new ELD regulations come subsequent training needs and changes to drivers’ hours – creating a number of additional costs for carriers, which are in turn being passed along to shippers. So, what can shippers do to combat the ongoing market challenges of 2018?

    Intermodal Industry Update: Conquering the 2017 Capacity Crunch

    - by Transplace

    For shippers and carriers alike, it’s certainly an interesting time in transportation. The intermodal market in particular has shifted on a dime in Q3 of 2017, while over-the-road (OTR) capacity has also changed significantly. For a few years, the market had been fairly saturated, but with recent hurricanes in the southern parts of the country, capacity has tightened significantly. Now is a great time for shippers to take note of this market shift and consider how intermodal transportation can help as capacity continues to tighten.

    Labor Day 2017: Working Hard to Fuel America

    - by Transplace

    The first observance of the Labor Day holiday was on September 5, 1882, and the idea of the “hard working holiday” was passed along to other labor organizations in 1885. From there, it was widely adopted and celebrated in many industrial centers across the U.S. – and it’s a nice way to end the summer months and head into the fall season!
