California Freight Heats Up, Spurred By Hanjin Collapse

DAT Solutions

Even if they didn’t have cargo on Hanjin ships, big retailers are starting to shift inventory from West Coast distribution centers to other DCs farther east. On the down side, there were fewer loads moving out of Columbus and Chicago last week, but outbound rates remain strong in the Midwest. Spot market activity often ramps up in the West during the fall season, but there's added pressure this month.

What to Do Now Before the Panama Canal Expands

CH Robinson Transportfolio

Shippers in Columbus, OH, will be in the battleground region of the United States, with ports on the East and West Coasts vying for their business. If costs were all that mattered, these shippers would route their products through the expanded Panama Canal to reach Columbus via rail from the New York-New Jersey port. The Panama Canal expands in 2016. What will it mean for U.S. logistics?

New Panama Canal Options: Running the Numbers with a TMS

TMC

When the expanded Panama Canal opened this June, a new set of routes became available for shippers and beneficial cargo owners (BCOs). Cargo can enter the country via East coast or West coast ports depending on variables such as the type of product being shipped. The preferred amount of inventory held on ships and trucks depends on constraints such as the value of the cargo. New Panama Canal Options: Running the Numbers with a TMS.Connect by TMC.

Ships arrived late, and containers were unloaded and drayed to warehouses late, so that cargo is finally heading east and north. Some shippers preferred to deliver cargo there by sea, bypassing the Los Angeles-area ports altogether. Prices between Columbus, OH, and Buffalo, NY, fell in both directions. Columbus to Buffalo fell 18¢ to land at $3.45/mile. Buffalo to Columbus dropped 19¢ to $2.01/mile.

Who said supply chains are boring?: 6. Winfield Scott: A Native.

Supply Chains Rock

Last week we highlighted Christopher Columbus: A Logistical Pioneer. Combat logistics patrols are often dangerous and returning with empty cargo often isn’t a priority. Who said supply chains are boring? Whenever I tell a friend, colleague or family member about my job as soon as the words "supply chain" are muttered I immediately see glassy eyes followed by a yawn or two.

Those lanes are associated with retail, and the cargo may include last-minute merchandise for the back-to-school season. Rates also got a boost on eastbound lanes out of Chicago and Columbus , both averaging above $2.10 One example is the lane from Columbus to Buffalo. The rate for the return trip from Buffalo to Columbus is close to the national average, at $1.83 The rate is still not great on the return trip from Allentown to Columbus at only $1.66

Technology Helping Truckers & City Planners Reduce Traffic

Cerasis

Autonomous cars drop their passengers off at the curb by day, trucks drop off cargo at night. In a pilot program in Columbus, Ohio, government vehicles collaborated with public data-sharing programs to better understand traffic flow and greatly improve the “pacing” of their city’s traffic lights. Traffic and congestion are expensive and annoying problems for any city and its people. It seems to have been getting worse for a while , too.

It will take in other metropolitan areas like Detroit and Columbus, and encompass a newly contested region that accounts for more than 15% of the U.S. They serve regional markets and are unlikely to receive large volumes of cargo headed to the battleground region. You might think that shippers along the East Coast will be the biggest beneficiaries of fierce competition between the East and West Coast ports.

How Will Hurricane Harvey Affect Freight Rates?

DAT Solutions

We expect to see rates climb in the Southeast in the coming weeks as cargo ships will be diverted from Houston's deep water port to places like Miami, Savannah, and Charleston, and then transferred to other freight hubs in the region, including Memphis, Atlanta, and Greenville , SC. Columbus to Memphis lost 10¢ of the previous week’s gain, back to $1.70 Even if you’re not planning to go anywhere near Texas or Louisiana, you might be affected by Hurricane Harvey.

Cargo Ship Woes Still Affecting Spot Market Rates

DAT Solutions

Columbus is a hub for retail distribution centers, and lane rates last week for L.A. to Columbus were also the highest they’ve been in a year, at $1.59/mile. The bankruptcy of the world's 7th largest container carrier, Hanjin Shipping , has led to shippers re-adjusting inventories in the past couple of weeks in order to avoid stock-outs as we head into retail season. Those previously unplanned shipments have brought about a surge in demand for trucks in Los Angeles.
