Event Description

Understand the Market Conditions Leading to a Volatile Pricing Environment and Develop Strategies for Managing Truckload Pricing

The current environment is the most volatile pricing environment since deregulation in the 1980s, due to two market conditions. The first condition is the steady increase in capacity utilization. Due to this, the industry no longer has surge capacity that historically insulated pricing and service from the pressures of seasonal demand peaks and other shocks to the system. As a result, events like the bad winter of 2014 can push short term price increases by 20%.

The other market condition is the rapid swings in fuel pricing whether up or down. These two conditions can pay havoc with transportation budgets in all segments of the industry.

In this session, expert speaker Noel Perry will look at these developments in detail. Noel will highlight the prospects for changes in pricing from both of these conditions. He will explore the range of possibilities and the likely implications for professionals in logistics in the carrier and shipper communities as well as their associated supply chains.

Training Objective

In this program, you will learn

  • About the split of freight solicitation into two distinct segments, contract and spot
  • The concentration of market pressure in the spot segment, and the neglect of major movement in the contract segment
  • The driver shortage is not sufficiently tight to create capacity problems in the contract segment
