Where are your freight transportation rates headed in 2014?

Our panel of top economic and transportation market analysts tell us that freight rates will most certainly see incremental gains across the board in 2014.  And to keep even the smallest increases in check, our panel adds that it’s now imperative for the savviest shippers to control total landed costs by using a variety of modes— and to use that mix to its fullest advantage.

Are you prepared with the modal mix that will keep freight increases in check?

Join us for this special Webcast as our panel of leading economic and transportation analysts share their exclusive insight on where rates are headed and the issues that will be driving those rate increases over the next 12 months.  As an attendee you’ll gain a better understanding of:

  • The current state of the U.S. economy and its impact on freight transportation
  • Which way oil and fuel prices are likely to go in 2014
  • What to expect in terms of rates and capacity across all modes

Report highlights executives' focus on direct store delivery processes.

UPS today released first quarter 2014 results, noting that fierce storms early in the year hurt their earnings.

Over $2 billion dollars in carrier overcharges go uncollected each year as shippers do not have the time or resources to collect refunds.

Last year at this time, retailers were relieved to learn that a tentative agreement on a new labor contract had been reached by dockside labor and management on the U.S. East and Gulf coasts. But not without considerable blood on the floor.

The National Retail Federation is encouraging maritime management and the union representing dockworkers along the U.S. West Coast ports to expedite pending contract negotiations and reach agreement on a new deal well in advance of the expiration of the current contract this summer.
