Shippers Update - $790

Essential Outlooks for Shippers on Freight Volumes, Transport Costs, and Capacity

The Shippers Update provides a comprehensive, multi-modal view of U.S. freight transportation. Shippers experienced a sustained period of favorable conditions due to slow industrial growth and adequate capacity in all modes. However, this favorable period is ending and FTR expects conditions to deteriorate from a shipper standpoint. Truck capacity has been declining as freight growth continues. Implementation of ELDs will further exacerbate the capacity situation, resulting in higher rates throughout 2018. New equipment orders have been strong, yet the capacity situation will remain challenging due to the tight labor market and driver situation. Only FTR quantifies the regulatory impact on shipper economics and gives clear expectations about the future.
