Trucking Crisis: Root Causes and Required Market Adjustments

In 2014, the trucking industry moved decisively into a new era of tight capacity. A decade of competitive and financial pressure has removed the majority of surge capacity from the industry leaving it vulnerable to any short-run shock or seasonal surge. This change has left the shipper base at the mercy of magnified spot price swings and has widened the splits between regular and irregular freight flows.

In this session, Noel Perry will review how supply-side pressures have pushed trend capacity utilization to just below the crisis point of 100% and how seasonal surges pushed spot markets above that level. In addition to overall price increases in all markets, you will learn how the carriers enhanced mix management has widened the distinction between high-margin “good freight” and lower margin “bad” freight. This development is forcing supply chains to consider the productivity and price attractiveness of their freight flows much more closely.

This program will help you:

  • Come with a statistically solid quantification of volume, productivity and price events in 2014
  • Provide forecasts and identify the major risks (up and down) that confront the industry in 2015
  • Develop well-documented financial and market plans for 2015

Session highlights:

  • Capacity Utilization and surge capacity.
  • Various risks effecting the Truckload.
  • Regulatory hiring pressure.
  • Market and price Volatility... and much more

Who should attend

  • Carrier executives, sales professionals and financial analysts
  • Logistics and shipping managers
  • Government planners and regulators
  • Investors and security analysts
  • Professionals who buy, sell, or invest in truckload or intermodal transport
