Schaefer Systems International will hold its first annual Schaefer Solutions Institute event for its integrator partners and consultants. The event will begin on Monday, May 20, 2013 and conclude on May 22, 2013 at their North American headquarters in Charlotte, NC.

“We are excited to hold this event for our integrators and consultants,” says Schaefer System’s integrator manager Adam Brown. “We want to be a true partner.  We understand that empowering our integrators and consultants with the right resources and support is critical to everyone’s long-term success.”

This three-day workshop is designed to provide key knowledge necessary to survive in the automated material handling industry. A site tour is planned for the first day so attendees can experience Schaefer’s automation technology first hand. On days two and three, attendees will discover the key benefits and features of Schaefer’s technology and actually put that knowledge to use with some example solutions. Upon successful completion of the workshop, system integrators and consultants will leave with the most current information and necessary skills needed to successfully partner with Schaefer to move their logistics business forward.

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.

Earlier this week, FedEx said it is expanding its International First service for early deliveries with the addition of 31 new origin countries, which will bring the total number of origin markets for the service to 97.

Monday, December 22 is pegged as UPS's peak delivery day, as the company expects to deliver more than 34 million packages that day, adding that it expects to see six days in December top last year’s peak shipment day delivery record of 31 million packages.

The time has come again for less-than-truckload (LTL) general rate increases (GRI), with various carriers recently announced their respective rate hikes in recent days.

Key market metrics in the form of capacity and rates appear to be continuing to work against shippers, according to the most recent edition of the Shippers Condition Index (SCI) from freight transportation forecasting firm FTR.
