One factor that I believe will impact the transportation industry greatly in 2014 is the lower cost of fuel. As gasoline and diesel prices stabilize at lower levels than seen in quite a while, fuel surcharges — which have, I believe, been money-makers in the trucking industry — will become more transparent and lower. Thus, we may actually see some operators’ margins eventually go down, and trucking industry profits lessen as a whole.
