What is the State of Freight Pricing?

In this episode Mark and Cerasis’ Marketing Manager & “The Freight Project Podcast” host, Adam Robinson, will discuss in depth about the state of freight pricing.

In this “The Freight Project Podcast” episode you’ll have the following questions answered:

  • What does Mark do as a Pricing analyst at Cerasis on behalf of our shipper customers in regard to freight pricing?

  • What’s different this year versus last year when it comes to the state of freight pricing and what has Mark seen in his conversations with both shippers and carriers?

  • How does the current state of freight pricing impact shippers’ or Cerasis’ approach to negotiating contracts & fees with carriers?

  • Do shippers have more leverage if freight pricing is down year over year?

  • What advice does Mark offer to shippers who feel freight pricing is volatile and are looking for stabilization?

  • What are the various types of freight pricing that shippers should know?

  • With Cerasis aiding our shipper customers in securing the best pricing with the best carriers that match the best to the shipper’s specific freight, how does Cerasis effectively advocate for both parties to make sure all feel that the agreements signed are the best for all and keeps everyone happy?

  • What does a Freight recession mean, and does Mark think we are headed for one? And how would this impact shippers as they approach carriers for freight pricing or even look for partners like Cerasis?
