- Spot and contract rates for truck freight continue to hover around historically high levels on all of the major freight networks. When will shippers start to see relief?
- Rail freight activity has trended upwards recently as shippers look for cost-saving opportunities. Will the modal-shift momentum continue for rail and intermodal or will truck win the share back quickly?
- Port congestion and limited availability in the container market continue to drive rates higher for intermodal lanes. Will these climbing rates keep shippers from securing capacity on the intermodal networks or will the cost-savings entice them to make the shift?
