    We are pleased to provide another transportation market update for you this week. The major theme in our commentary today is a continuation of dramatic disruptions that continue to wreak havoc on most of the global supply chain. While a few indices are settling down, i.e., dry van spot rates on major lanes fell or were flat after rising sharply in the prior week, there remains tremendous uncertainty in the market and little visibility into what the future holds. We will continue to monitor the impact of stricter “safer at home” orders on shipments of non-essential goods, medical supplies, and consumer products.

    2019 Holiday Retail Rush: Meeting Customers Demand and Delivering Seamless Services

    - by Transplace

    In the last several years, there has been a significant shift in consumer behavior, creating extensive growth in e-commerce and direct-to-consumer (DTC) shipping (sometimes called the “Amazon Effect”).
