Freight Focus

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 are now experiencing the first sustained period of favorable conditions since 2009. Slow industrial growth and adequate capacity in all modes are combining to create this situation. However, this favorable period will not last and we expect conditions to deteriorate from a shipper standpoint as economic volatility increases and the regulatory agenda is implemented. Only FTR quantifies the regulatory impact on shipper economics and gives clear expectations about the future.
