The current environment in trucking is beginning to change. Freight volume is starting to increase, impacting capacity utilization in the process. Regulations are increasing continuously, accessorial pricing is on the rise, and there is great desire to capture as much revenue as possible.
Going forward, there will be increase in general rates at both the spot and contract segments. The continued shortages of long haul drivers may impact the rates somewhat; but, there are still too many trucks chasing not enough freight.
In this session, expert speaker M. Dave Malenfant will help you to predict the behavior of the freight transportation market in 2017. You’ll be able to look at the trends in the market and the impact on future pricing. Dave will explore the range of issues that impact the decisions that professionals in logistics in both the carrier and shipping community need to make when looking at the future. With this session, you’ll be equipped with the knowledge to estimate and manage truckload pricing in the year ahead.
