For January, the most recent month for which data is available, the SCI was 4.3, topping December’s 3.0, and November’s -0.6 (which was an improvement over October’s -3.1). FTR said these recent tallies reflect how favorable market conditions from 2015 continued into 2016, adding that capacity is now sufficient to meet current market demands. But it added that the SCI is expected to turn negative as the year moves on, due to concerns about expected capacity shortages in 2017.

The most recent edition of the Shippers Condition Index (SCI) from freight transportation consultancy FTR issued this week points to mild market conditions. FTR describes the SCI as an indicator that sums up all market influences that affect the transport environment for shippers, with a reading above zero being favorable and a reading below zero being unfavorable and a “less-than-ideal environment for shippers.”

FTR said that the current SCI level continues to show the “moratorium” in truckload rate growth during the summer months, adding that it is expected that market conditions will become more difficult for shippers in 2016 en route to the expected negative impact regulations are expected to have on capacity, with the regulatory crunch expected to be in full effect in 2017.
