Product Description

Explore the Issues That Will Impact Your Truckload Pricing Decisions in 2018


The current environment in trucking is beginning to change, and freight volume has begun to increasingly impact capacity utilization. With the continued increase in new regulations and the desire to capture as much revenue as possible, accessorial pricing is on the rise. Going forward, there will be increases in the general rates at both the spot and contract segments. Recent natural disasters coupled with the implementation of the ELD mandate, along with continued shortages of long haul drivers is impacting capacity and subsequently, could put an upward pressure on pricing.

This session with expert speaker Dave Malenfant will explore the range of issues impacting the decisions that logistics professionals in both the carrier and shipping community need to make when looking at the future. Dave will also look at the trends in the market and the impact of these trends on future pricing.
