FTR’s Shippers Conditions Index (SCI) for January, as detailed in the March Issue of the Shippers Update, reflects a more challenging environment for shippers as 2017 gets underway with a -3.6 reading. While capacity is tightening, shippers should be optimistic that regulatory drag will likely be slowed under the new Republican president and congress.
