Trucking Market: First Quarter Review & Outlook

Start Date:4/18/2019

Start Time:1:00 PM CDT / 2:00 Pm eDt

Duration:60 minutes


One of the most intense trucking capacity crises in recent memory throttled inland distribution channels in 2018, thanks to high import volumes and enforcement of the electronic logging device mandate. Capacity began to creep back late in the year as transportation networks found a new balance, but demand for drayage, truckload and LTL capacity remained strong, and truck utilization rates were high, keeping pressure on pricing. As the industry rounds the first-quarter bend of 2019, this webcast will analyze the current landscape, the outlook for the rest of the year, and focus on these key questions:

•        Will shippers find capacity relief?

•        Will slower economic growth mean more capacity or will increasing complexity and other obstacles keep capacity tight?

•        What can shippers do to ensure capacity they need in drayage and over-the-road trucking?
