    2018 Capacity Series: Intermodal Market Challenges & Costs

    2018 Capacity Series: Intermodal Market Challenges & Costs

    - by Transplace

    It’s both an interesting and rather chaotic time in the intermodal market. The ELD mandate is in full effect, with leniency through April, and there have been some widespread market changes as a result. For carriers, with the new ELD regulations come subsequent training needs and changes to drivers’ hours – creating a number of additional costs for carriers, which are in turn being passed along to shippers. So, what can shippers do to combat the ongoing market challenges of 2018?

    The weeks leading up to Thanksgiving and the subsequent holiday season is often the start of increased capacity constraints and a precursor to the supply chain challenges that typically remain for the rest of the year. In the current market, there is already a lot of activity that is drawing from normal OTR capacity, and things have gotten tight throughout many direct-to-consumer (DTC) channels.

    For shippers and carriers alike, it’s certainly an interesting time in transportation. The intermodal market in particular has shifted on a dime in Q3 of 2017, while over-the-road (OTR) capacity has also changed significantly. For a few years, the market had been fairly saturated, but with recent hurricanes in the southern parts of the country, capacity has tightened significantly. Now is a great time for shippers to take note of this market shift and consider how intermodal transportation can help as capacity continues to tighten.

    Highway Heroes: It’s National Truck Driver Appreciation Week!

    - by Transplace

    Today is the first day of National Truck Driver Appreciation Week, and it’s the perfect time to honor all professional truck drivers across the nation for their hard work and dedication. Approximately 9.2 billion tons of freight are moved on trucks annually, which requires nearly 3 million heavy-duty Class 8 trucks and 3.5 million drivers. It also takes over 37 billion gallons of diesel fuel to move all of that freight – that’s some serious trucking!

    To celebrate the commitment these great workers bring to their important and demanding jobs, we wanted to take a look at some of the impressive stats they rack up over the span of a year.  We thank you, American Truckers, for your hard work, dedication and long hours on the roads!

A growing number of U.S. retailers have begun opening stores in Mexico to grow their customer base and drive profits by capitalizing on the country’s developing middle class.
