3 Year Record High Rates!

November Rates for Truckload Break a 3 year record high with an 18 month streak since June 2014!

The North American Freight Index showed the availability is 39% lower in truckloads. That means Vans & Flatbeds prices are all up with Reefer costs holding strong & steady..

We do our homework at Go123 

  • We use our GGI (God Given Intelligence) before rating our customers. 
  • We cross reference several markets which we pay heavy fees to be a member with to develop the best price for our customers.
  • We study resources like Inbound Logistics for logistics and supply chain articles for news and tools to prepare for the long haul!

Several large carriers like Estes & YRC Freight are opening up opportunities across the Americas. We currently have a competitive advantage as more lanes open up going into Mexico & Canada markets.

More News You Can Use!

Predictions for La NiƱa - upcoming snowy weather can cause delays and a spike in rates in the shipping industry - be prepared. 

Rounding out the Thomas four by four this week is the category of transportation brokers, also referred to as freight brokers. According to Keith Biondo of Inbound Logistics- a Thomas publication - there are 3 factors helping drive the upward trend in sourcing for transportation brokers.
  1. Hours of Service regulations, or HoS, are limiting the amount of time truck drivers are allowed to spend on the road safely. 
  2. The government's ELD Mandate, or the Electronic Logging Device mandate, will fo into effect this December, and depending on which carrier you ask, this will reduce logged miles for drivers by approximately 5-10%. 
  3. Indicators are that the economy is expected to grow in 2018, which will increase demand for freight services - a demand will grow while factors such as Hos end ELD shrink capacity. Clearly, it looks like shippers that need to move freight are trying to get their ducks in a row for 2018 right now.

ELD Mandate shows only 3/4 of all small fleets are ELD Compliant - this means nearly 1 quarter of small fleet trucks are missing in the upcoming market which can affect rating and booking times.
