With the second quarter of the year coming to a close, we’re looking ahead into the third quarter and how it’ll affect the transportation sector. By looking at what’s going on in the current market, we’re able to make certain predictions about what we think will happen in Q3.
It’s hard to predict something as volatile as the transportation industry, but we’re always looking into the market to better service our customers and carriers. We strive to be the transportation experts by always analyzing and learning about our industry.
Here’s what we’re noticing:
- Outside of the Southeast region, van rates continue to fall
- Flatbeds in the TX region are also tightening up
- Flatbed capacity in Texas, especially Houston is starting to dry up
- Spot opportunities have been fewer and fewer as this month [June] has progressed
All in all, we do have a positive outlook for Q3 with summer coming into full swing. We’re anticipating volume rising and are fully prepared to provide our usual, white glove service to our current and future customers.
We’d love to hear how your Q2 has gone and what you anticipate for Q3. And if you haven’t experienced our white glove service yet, we’d love the opportunity to show you what we can do.
