Get More from Your Warehouse, Workers and Infrastructure with a Portable Power Source


October 23, 2012

When you need a portable power source, you need convenience, not worries. Unfortunately, worries are what come with most of the available choices. Some require a power cord that might present a tripping hazard. Gasoline generators are noisy and unwieldy, emit fumes, and can only be used outdoors. Many battery packs are too weak and/or don’t last long enough between charging.

Now there is an alternative which is far more versatile: a stand-alone portable power package (PPP) capable of supplying clean, seamless AC power for as long as 12 + hours. The ability to power your existing equipment (i.e. scale, label printer, PC, etc.) anywhere within your facility means you have the flexibility to bring power to where the work is. What does this mean for your business? Fewer footsteps to complete tasks, improved accuracy of task execution, fewer workstations needed and higher volumes and throughput for existing facilities and equipment.

Intermodal units, at 278,767 containers and trailers were up 6.7 percent compared to the same week last year and marks the third best week for intermodal ever recorded based on AAR’s data.

LM Group News Editor Jeff Berman recently conducted a wide-ranging interview with Bobby Harris, President and CEO of non asset-based 3PL BlueGrace Logistics about various aspects of the freight transportation market.

It’s small, but senior brass at YRC Worldwide will take it. After nearly seven years of continuing losses in excess of $2.6 billion, the parent of the nation’s second-largest LTL carrier posted a narrow net profit in the third quarter ended Sept. 30.

As was the case for the second quarter, third quarter earnings results for publicly-traded less-than-truckload (LTL) carriers are again strong. Signs of solid earnings results from carriers that have posted earnings to date include tonnage increases, gains in weight per shipment and average daily shipments, higher yield, and revenue per hundredweight.

While the holiday season is known to bring good tidings and cheer to all, it may also come with another thing that is not so pleasant: higher rate freights. That was the thesis of a commentary written by Mark Montague, industry pricing analyst and chief market-watcher for DAT, a Portland, Ore.-based subsidiary of TransCore.
