The State of Freight Pricing & A Freight Recession Outlook

Adam Robinson, host of “The Freight Project” Podcast welcomes Kevin back as he speaks to his vast carrier database as well as shippers, 3PLs, and other transportation entities getting the front-line information as it relates to both transportation data and freight pricing.

In this “The Freight Project Podcast” episode you’ll hear:

  • What carriers are looking for that would make a shipper be considered “Shipper of Choice.”
  • What is the difference between contract rates & spot rates and where Kevin thinks freight pricing is headed for the rest of 2019.
  • An outlook on if  we are headed for a freight recession in 2019 & if the freight market, and thus freight pricing, will shift to be more advantageous for shippers near the end of the year and heading into 2020.
  • How the ELD mandate is ultimately a long term positive change in the industry that will allow for more data gathering, analysis, and increased collaboration as shippers build out their own carrier databases made up of the best carriers for their freight.
