Disruptions at West Coast ports, which were resolved at the end of February, may have distorted the numbers

Growth firmly remains in the cards for both the manufacturing and non-manufacturing sectors in 2015. That was the main takeaway from the December 2014 Semiannual Economic Forecast from the Institute for Supply Management (ISM), which, in many ways, picked up where its companion Spring 2014 report published last April left off.

First quarter revenue of $1.776 billion was down 4.8 percent annually but up 4.6 percent in constant currency. And adjusted EBITDA at $51 million saw an 18.6 percent annual gain, with a 23.3 percent increase in constant currency.

Heading into 2015, the intermodal sector was faced with the same challenges it had exiting 2014, namely the West Coast port labor disruption and harsh winter weather. But even with these obstacles volumes still managed to show overall growth on an annual basis, according to the most recent edition of the Intermodal Market Trends & Statistics Report from the Intermodal Association of North America (IANA).

Forget cost cutting. Innovation and sustainability are the most important factors in business today. The companies that get it right can still win in a flat economy, says ISM CEO Tom Derry.
