    Transportation Industry Update: Q1 2018 Quarterly Industry Report

    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.

    LTL Trends and Challenges: Density-Based Pricing

    LTL Trends and Challenges: Density-Based Pricing

    - by Transplace

    Within the last few years, less-than-truckload (LTL) rates and capacity have fluctuated. Many carriers have shifted from the traditional National Motor Freight Classification (NMFC) rate-setting formula to density-based pricing, which prices freight according to the amount of space the shipment uses in the truck. This new pricing model, along with other recent industry trends, has had a significant impact on shippers – making it important to understand the new pricing methods for LTL shipments, what’s currently happening in the LTL industry, and some of its key market challenges.
