April 18,2017 -Procuring Truck Capacity at the Right Price

Patrick Leahy, Area VP Enterprise Freight Services at DAT and Ben Cubitt, SVP, Consulting and Strategy Services, Transportation Management at Transplace will discuss current market events their effects on the North America Trucking market and their view on future truckload pricing.


Shippers may be tempted to reduce transportation costs by negotiating across-the-board rate reductions. That could work in the short term, due to today’s loose capacity environment. The market is changing rapidly, however, and within 18 months, those aggressive cost cutters may wish they had invested more in preserving relationships with their best for-hire carriers. You can have both. By bench marking your company’s rate history against prevailing market rates  on a lane-by-lane basis, you can reduce transportation spending in a way that supports strategic relationships and ensures access to capacity when transportation again becomes a seller’s market.
