    Key Takeaways from the 2019 Transplace Carrier Advisory Board Meeting

    - by Transplace

    One of the great things about an advisory board, one where you have encouraged the participants to be open and communicate freely, is that you can get the scoop on the real issues facing an industry. This was the case at our recent Transplace Carrier Advisory Board, held in conjunction with the 2019 Transplace Carrier Symposium. While the symposium is all about education and honoring our 32,000+ carriers, the advisory board is by design a much smaller venue to allow more informal feedback. Our goal for talking with a small group of about 20 select carriers is to help us grow and learn how to be better partners. Throughout the meeting, there were several consistent themes, a few which I will share below. .

    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.
