Trucking Market: First Quarter Review & Outlook

Trucking Market: First Quarter Review & Outlook

After years of dire predictions of a major trucking capacity crunch, 2018 hit, and those predictions quickly became reality. This is a year unlike any shippers have seen in more than a decade, and no forecaster early in 2018 foresees near-term relief. Tight truckload capacity, higher freight volumes, double-digit trucking rate increases and faster, e-commerce-driven delivery demands from customers have shippers scrambling to avoid budget-breaking rate hikes from their transportation providers and significant penalties and fees from unhappy customers, especially big-box retailers. It’s a tight-wire balancing act exacerbated by the intrusion of the electronic logging device mandate, which is sucking time out of supply chains and changing the ground under shippers.

This webcast will analyze the North American trucking market following a dramatic first quarter.
